In this book is both a city being reshaped by our times as well as a timeless city with 500-year-old customs and festivals. Von Rothkirch sees the contrasts that show up at street level but even the graffiti is distinctively Bogota Cristobal von Rothkirch looks at his city in a passionate way, discovering what could be the new essence of the Pan-American metropolis.
