In 2015, Michael and I spent several weeks in Colombia, starting out with a week in Bogota. As an aside, Bogota has THE most wonderful museums!! I spent every day out and about while Michael was working and still didn’t get to see everything that I wanted.
But, I digress…. On our first day there, one of the students, Juliana, picked us up at our hotel and spent the day ushering us around the city. The first destination was Mount Monserrate which overlooks the city of Bogota. We enjoyed the morning eating delicacies from the street vendors and wandering around the mountain top.
There is a church located there….. Iglesia Basilica del Senor de Monserrate….and that is where my inspiration came from. A small chapel in the back of the church was designed as a semicircle and the ceilings were magnificent!!!
The stained glass wasn’t bad either!!
