A four hour drive north of Bogotá through a highway with four tolls and lots of rough roads led me to Boyacá. Evoking a sense of patriotism among Colombians, it is in the Boyacá region that Colombian troops won their independence from Spain at the Puente de Boyacá, led by Simon Bolivar. The country side is quite verdant and interesting sights abound.

It is also in  Boyacá where the one-horse town of Raquirá is located — the pottery capital of Colombia. It is here where the colonial houses with handicraft stores are at its most colourful.

  1. Gary, I am glad to see you are traveling once again.

    Your photos seem to be larger. They look really good and much easier to view. Even more enjoyable.

    Go do something really crazy!!!

    • Thanks, Geoff. Good to hear your feedback on the pictures – I use my iPad when travelling and somehow the format is different when viewed on a smartphone or a desktop/laptop.
