Plaza de Bolívar in Bogotá, Colombia

Plaza de Bolívar Bogotá.

Every city and town I have been to has plaza named after Simon Bolívar who led Colombia and others to independence from Spain. I find it interesting that he did not feel South American was ripe for the ideals of the American Revolution, due to its “ignorance, tyranny, and vice.” Two-hundred years later and nothing has changed.
