Season’s greetings Bogota!

In this bumper edition of The Bogota Post, we’ve got a lot for you to sink your teeth into, not least our four-page gastronomy special, with plenty of culinary options for you to feast your eyes upon.

On this page we take a look at two new beginnings, with the opening of Monkey House’s Usaquen home and the start of the Wednesday Speakeasy cultural exchange.

We also have a special round- up of 2014’s theatre scene in Bogota from our guest writer Tigre Haller.

Should that inspire you, cast your eyes over our theatre listings, with a Spanish adaptation of Tom Sawyer taking centre stage.

The New Year brings with it the celebration of the Reyes, with the neighbourhood of Egipto hosting a Three Kings Festival.

Get your culture fix with music from world renowned harpsichord player Jory Vinikour, December 13, or enjoy some of the finest Afro-Colombian rhythms, with the unique stylings of Sixto Salgado Paíto, December 15.

How about some comedy hypnosis with Mustafa Badawy on December 20? What could possibly go wrong?

Be sure not to miss world- famous Mexican band Cafe Tacvba, and local boy Esteman’s end of year blowout, featuring Los Petit Fellas, although sadly they’re both on December 17.

Spending the end of the year in the city? We thought so, which is why we’ve created a guide to the best New Year’s Eve events, just for you. We’re nice like that.

For a precursor to the festivities, mosey on down to the Gringo Tuesdays Goodbye 2014 party and learn how to say Happy New Year in as many languages as possible. Or enter our competition and win champagne and vip entry. Now there’s a challenge…

So whether you’re spending your time with your family or you’re far from home, Bogota has plenty to keep you amused over the coming weeks.

Merry Christmas and have a great start to the New Year. See you in 2015 folks!
