Christmas day Bogota

A good end to a day, meeting with friends for a drink.  

Gorge I meet in London about 5 years ago now he is living and working in Bogota, his friend Yuri and my crazy friends Marvin and Kamilo.

McDonalds Bogota. 
The most expensive McDonald's I have been to and we had to wait over half an hour to be served as it was so busy. My friends loved it, ordering double large of everything. Must be a new thing for them in Bogota! When I showed this photo to friends in Rovira, they thought it was a new shopping mall. Lets hope they never have to eat this so called convenience food, would be a shame to see Colombia change like it's North American counterpart.
