Cold and cheerful Christmas in Bogota


The Colombian capital city of Bogotá has a surprisingly temperate climate given its location so close to the equator.  The reason, quite simply, is elevation.  Situated in a plateau in the Andes Mountains region, this metropolis has a base elevation of 2.65k meters (just under 8.7k ft.) above sea level.  While that's not quite as high as Quito or La Paz, it's high enough to produce snow in the winter months.  Exhibit A is this amazing drone video from Rodrigosv, showing a snowy Bogotá at Christmastime.
