The Jimenez avenue makes part of the historic dowtown of Bogota. Its name comes from the founder of the city: Gonzalo Jimenez de Quesada. At present this avenue is known as the environmental axis of the city and only it's permited the transit of the bus system known as Transmilenium. In the past the San Francisco River flowed along the space now occupied by the avenue. The river was channeled in 1930's decade.
This is EL Dorado Avenue, showing the development of new malls. This avenue gives the welcome to people arriving to Bogotá by plain. By the way, sadly our airport will change its name soon, but I can ask to my visitors, how they feel when arriving to a country the plain's captain say: We are reaching to El Dorado. Nice? Well I have to get an urgent picture of the control tower where the EL Dorado name is written with big golden letters before they throw them away.
