Bogota, Colombia – Some local Colombian people walk down the narrow, cobblestoned, Calle del Embudo, in the historic district of La Candelaria, in the Andean capital city of Bogota, Colombia, in South America. The City was founded in the 16th Century in this area, by the Spanish Conquistador, Gonzalo Jiménez de Quesada. Many walls in this area are painted with either street art, or legends of the pre Colombian era, in the vibrant colours of Latin America. The wall of a shop on the right is an example of such murals. It has rained a little and the Carrera is wet; the overcast sky promises more rain. 20th July is National Day in Colombia and the country’s flag is flown on many buildings.
