Hello all,

In preparation for our interview in Bogota Colombia I looked for a map of the US Embassy in to get an idea of what to expect. I was unable to find one so I put this together from my experience at the Embassy. Please see the blog post for the maps and I hope this helps those of you who have interviews at the Embassy in Bogota.
