For people who are interested in taking a look at the real Bogota, I recommend the Streetfilm video, Lessons from Bogota..

Gil Peñalosa is the tour guide and describes the changes in Bogota.

In my opinion, the most fascinating part of the video is from 1:30 to 3:30. Mr. Peñalosa led the tour through one of the poorest neighbourhoods in Bogota. It was so poor that the roads for cars were unpaved moonscapes. But there was excellent Dutch-quality cycling and pedestrian infrastructure, because that is cheap and is how the people get around.
