Today, July 20th 2009 is the independence day of the country of Colombia. 199th Anniversary, since Simon Bolivar declared them free from Spanish dominance. We have featured in the book the knowledge of the celebration of their Bicentennial next year. It is very good time to all of their historical landmarks, like the “Museo Quinta de Bolivar”, that was Bolivar’s house in Bogota and has all of the furniture that He used when he lived there. Also you can visit, “Manuela's House” and “Bolivar’s Square”. We will keep you up to date on all of the events that are schedule for this celebration and also hope that you can separate some time to visit and experience the city and all it’s grandeur in this very special occasion.
In the picture you will see a head statue of Simon Bolivar, that is also in the book.
