While on the bike tour I got to see a demonstration. It seems the teachers were having a problem with something and so they took to the streets. I was informed that protests are something of a frequent occurrence in Bogota. Someone is getting politically disenfranchised virtually every week, just like in the USA. Only in Colombia, they tend to protest a little more and, since the military always comes out to help them do the protest, sometimes things get a little violent. It seems it may the “Colombian Way”, after all the country is still in an armed civil war that has lasted about 45 years now. People have told me that the anti-government guerillas were banging on the doors of Bogota about 10 years ago, but the government has gained the upper hand since then. Nice job, government of Colombia. For more details click here.
