Looming over the historic center of Bogotá, Monserrate is perhaps the Colombian capital’s most iconic landmark. The mountain itself towers a full 10,341 feet (3,152 meters) above sea level, casting an impressive shadow over the rest of Bogotá.  I spent the early evening walking the grounds and taking in the sites with some newly acquainted friends.  Looking down upon a city of eight million and only hearing the rustling of leaves brought to mind a quote:  “The silence of a mountain has the tranquility and serenity of peace.” ― Debasish Mridha

I will never forget that feeling.  Whatever the future may hold, I will always remember the time spent on Monserrate and how when viewed from afar, a rushed and hurried life only feels that way to the participant, but not to the spectator.
