back in Bogota

Bea and I are back, and in the two years I have been away, this place has changed. More agitation in the air, more military police in the street patting down students on the streetcorners, more revolutionary graffiti, more desplazados being lectured by cops. This has been one of the few places where seeing a cop was reassuring -- I´m no longer sure that´s true. They all seem like they´re fresh out of high school now. Kids with guns.

Graffiti that left an impression:

No pardon, no forgetting

Closing hospitals is a terrorist act

Re-election = more repression

I hope to see a bit more outside of the city, but must keep travel to the daylight hours.

more to come
