Visiting With Artists in La Candelaria in Bogota

If you've been following my blog, you know that I recently spent a few fascinating and fun days in Colombia, touring around and taking in the local flavor.  One day, my friends and I visited La Candelaria in Bogota, a very old section of the city.  The purpose was to meet up with Guillermo Londoño, a world-renown Colombian painter.  Many artists call La Candelaria home and by living there, have helped the area with a major revival.  Londoño graciously opened his home to us, introduced us to other artist friends, gave us a tour of his neighborhood, and also took us to Estudios Las Nieves, where he has studio space alongside several other noted artists.  I wish I had more time to spend with these fabulously talented individuals!
