Felix Alvarado tales us to La Casona del Museo, in Bogota, Colombia that he manages. The facade of La Casona del Museo is an important cultural location in the city. Originally a house, it was built in 1780 and delivered as dowry to a Monastery by its original owner. Since then, the building has been used as a hotel, school, and a restaurant.
Felix says: "As the building was about to become a ruin, it was rescued and I restored it as a high quality center for handicraft. In the photo, I am with a young lady in typical Colombian dress. The Colombian hat I am wearing, a sombrero voltiao and my Mochila, were both made by Colombian craftsmen."
