Bicycle tourists watch kites in crowded Simon Bolivar Park.
August is traditionally Bogotá’s kite flying month, thanks to the vigorous winds. And the place to be is Simon Bolivar Park, Bogotá’s largest public park.
Today, the 7 de agosto holiday, kites filled the sky and happy kids filled the park. A nice place for bike touring.
