Guns & Butter: Bogota Travel Guide

Bogota Travel Guide is part of the Punxsutawney TPOL Trip Report, where TPOL leaves the basement. It’s finally happening despite inconsistent policies, interruptions, and human stupidity as explained in these posts:

TPOL’s Guns & Butter Travel Guide is the best way to see as much as you can in as little time as possible. Here’s how it works – A trip is composed of two factors: Labor And Lazy. The opportunity cost (what is given up) for relaxing and being Lazy is gained by being adventurous in the form of Labor and vice versa. The guide includes inefficient activities i.e., tourist traps that should be avoided and aspirational activities that are worth doing but may be impossible to see given the constraints of time and resources.

I had no expectations when I arrived in Bogota. All I knew was life in my basement (see The Lost & Found Year(s): COVID Trip Report).

No Masks

Remember what life was like pre-Covid? I didn’t until I visited a nightclub in Bogota where no one was wearing a mask (see If I Get Covid, I Get Covid: TPOL’s Out of the Basement Travel Philosophy).

Remember partying? I didn’t until I visited a nightclub in Bogota (see Bogota, a Party City? Who Knew?).

Who are these people?


Remember friends? I didn’t until I visited Bogota.

Remember eating out with actual silverware? I didn’t until I went to Bogota.

Beef, it’s what’s for dinner.

TPOL’s Tip: La Biferia is located at Cl. 79b #8-79, Bogotá, Cundinamarca, Colombia.

TPOL’s Tip: Don’t ask them to split a tomahawk steak. While it was delicious, it ruined the photo.


Remember life? I didn’t until I was almost robbed in Bogota (see Welcome to Bogota: Almost Robbed in Broad Daylight).


Remember hotels? I didn’t until I stayed at the lackluster JW Marriott Bogota, minus the great spa.

Remember TPOL? I’m back. Thank you Bogota.
