I grew up in N. California, but also worked for several newspapers in the southern U.S. To improve my Spanish, I traveled to Chile, where I taught English, then to La Paz, Bolivia for several years, to Paraguay and then to Venezuela, where I covered Hugo Chavez's 'revolution' for foreign media. But I became disillusioned with chavismo and wanted to see Colombia, which did not receive the attention it deserved, so I came to Bogotá about six years ago. After three years, I started Bogotá Bike Tours.

They're not watching television or playing with their Ipods, but enjoying one of the oldest forms of human entertainment - storytelling. It's a tradition here, which not only entertains, but also helps pay storytellers' way through college. See Diego, one of the best-known storytellers, tell a crazy tale here.
