It’s been a fun week in Bogota and Mexico City and it’s sad to have to head back to New York (you don’t hear that too often!). The week has been such a great opportunity for students who want to get involved in real estate to learn about how the industry operates in emerging Latin American markets. We’ve visited great firms doing ground-up development, redevelopment, and investing all across Latin America, and we’ve certainly visited our fair share of cultural spots in both Bogota and Mexico City.
And the food…the food was amazing! When we were in Bogota, we went to Andres Carne de Res, one of the most famous steak restaurants in all of Colombia. Instead of ordering individual meals, we decided to order family style for each table, and we had some of the best food and especially meat that I’ve ever had. I’d highly recommend it for anyone looking to visit Colombia. And the last night in Mexico City, we went to a local taqueria which was exactly what we needed. It was cheap, quick, and most importantly, delicious:)
I also would be remiss if I didn’t thank our trip organizers Juan, Jonathan, Minna, and Alex for doing such a great job organizing everything. The trip itself was so seamless, and that made it all the more enjoyable.
