Kirsten's Journey to Colombia

Current Location

Bogotá, Colombia

Join me on my journey to Bogota, Colombia!


Colombia is really starting to feel like home to me. Find out some of the new things I have learned, and the cool things I did this week that made it special.


Although my journey here in Colombia is far from over, my time sharing my experiences with you all is coming to a close. I have learned so much, and I hope you all have too!

Field Notes

Ciudad Bolívar is the neighborhood with the highest level of poverty in Bogotá. Learn about how TransmiCable is hoping to lower poverty levels and how the mayor is working to improve the neighborhood.


Christmas season in Colombia begins on December 7th, with the celebration of the holiday Las Velitas. I celebrated in Bogotá and then traveled to Girardot over the holiday weekend.
