About the Author
Two New Yorkers (one of whom has also lived extensively in Paris) embarked upon finding a new city to call home, hoping to find a refuge from a world in apparent denouement, a city that could offer great culture, democracy, beauty, warm people, exciting business opportunities, a great climate, culinary treasures, ravishing nature, happiness on earth, and the startling result found was...Bogota.

Unfortunately, the book fell almost completely flat when it came to maps. There was not a decent map of the whole city to allow people to get a good visual sense of what was where. The detailed maps were lacking in terms of level of detail and coverage. Also, the restaurant/shop listings are quickly becoming outdated. The book is only from 2012, and the few places I trekked to find were gone. Still, it was definitely better than not having it and I appreciate the effort on the part of the authors to pull all the information together.
A final note is the quirky feel of a bilingual book with the English and Spanish on opposite pages. For people who just read one or the other, it is fairly inconspicuous. For people who can read both, it's easy to lose track of the language and feel like you're reading information you just read - as if the authors are repeating themselves. Not a problem, just a weird sensation.
