20 Things to See and Do in Bogotá

Posted: 03/25/2019 | March 25th, 2019 The capital of Colombia, Bogotá was the home to the region’s indigenous people, the Muisca, when the Spanish came around plundering gold and resources, and it’s been the country’s main city ever since. Before I went, everyone told me Bogotá wasn’t anything special: dirty, crowded, hard to get around, and lacking the charm of the other big cities in Colombia. “Spend a few days there and move on,” they all said. Well, I spent a few days there — and then a f...

Mill Valley Makeover: A “Ship-in-a-Bottle” Approach to a Historic California House

Eli and Allison Cohen weren’t looking to move. But when the old shingled house on their jogging route came up for sale, they succumbed to its surroundings—redwood forests, views of Mount Tamalpais, just two blocks from downtown Mill Valley, CA—and its future promise. “The place itself was charming but in tough shape,” Eli tells us. “The interior had been chopped up over the years, the floors sloped, there were funky stairwells all over, and almost none of the rooms took in The View.” On the up s...

The new TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre Tourbillon Nanograph is a lot of buzzwords in a beautiful package

Almost every word in the name of TAG Heuer’s new watch – the Carrera Calibre Heuer 02T Tourbillon Nanograph – is important. Carrera connects it to TAG’s long history of chronographs while Calibre suggests a handmade watch made with some technical prowess. Tourbillon means you can expect this thing to cost more than a car (about $25,000 when it goes on sale) and Nanograph suggests that this thing is doing something quite unique. And it is. TAG Heuer loves experimenting with new materials and ...

How Bogota is transforming

Visions of Colombia are often shaped by the legend of drug lord Pablo Escobar — fueled by the popular television series Narcos — and stories of FARC-driven violence that, until recently, dominated international headlines. In the heart of Bogota, the country’s capital and the center of years of unrest, a Colombian university is working to change what was once the city’s most violent neighborhood for the better, and with that, the perception the rest of the world has of Colombia. The Externado ...
