Macarena Memories


Finally, pictures of my DREAMBOAT Apartment in Macarena. The pictures are taken by John Z, the best person in the world and also the person I lived with for a month in June (also known as: The Best Month of My Life). This apartment used to be famous as a place one of the most well-known gay socialites of Bogota would hold outrageous parties. You can see why.

The first two photos show the views looking down and looking up from the main area. John's bedroom was up the first set of stairs and my temporary abode was up the second set. There are no photographs of my bedroom, which is a shame, because it is the best bedroom I have ever seen. It is huge, which two opposite WALLS of WINDOWS facing: 1. The mountains, including the famous lit up Church, and 2. The lights of the Bogota skyline. It was RIDICULOUS.

Although I don't have any photos (because I'm a raving idiot) there is at least, a photo of John's bedroom - which is also gorgeous, and shows you a glimpse of the Bogota skyline. Amazing.

The glass table in below the hammock was later smashed by me - while swinging like an idiot on the hammock, I knocked over one of those giant candle holders. It was Quite Dramatic. John ran in and could not stop laughing.

The top room (MY room!) was so hot during the day, as it was essentially a glasshouse, so Sam, John and I would lounge around on the bed/ sofa/ armchair, play on the internet, drink wine, open all of the windows and generally talk about how exceptionally priviledged we are. Xo.
