Plazoleta del Chorro de Quevedo - City Plaza Bogotá - Colombia

Deep into the student heartland of the Candelaria there is a small plaza with bars, restaurants and eclectic shops that appeal to an off-beat crowd. Here in the Plazoleta del Chorro de Quevedo is where Gonzalo Jimenez de Quesada - the founder of Bogotá - stopped and drank from a stream in his push south, not that you would know there is any stream here now. On week nights the place buzzes with music, storytellers and people of all shapes and sizes.
