Colombia has the world’s largest number of orchids, its national flower. In Bogota’s mountains, you will find a diversity of these orchids, as well as a wealth of species of flowers, birds, and butterflies. Below are some suggestions and highlights of Bogota for you to explore:

El Carmen Church (Iglesia Nuestra Señora del Carmen): You’ll easily spot the iconic 187-foot, red-and-white brick steeple in the Candelaria district. Decorated with Arabic and Byzantine art, this Gothic-style church was built between 1926 and 1938 with architecture that reflects the Spanish colonial tradition. See other churches in Candelaria here.

Plaza de Bolivar: A visit to Bogota often begins here, in the heart of the original town. In this square is the city’s first public monument, the 1846 bronze statue of Simon Bolivar, known as El Libertador.

La Catedral PrimidaGothic-style with a French influence, the Holy Cathedral Church has five naves, 88 columns, and 72 vaults. 

The Gold Museum (Museo del Oro), in the cobblestoned La Candelaria, houses the largest collection of pre-Colombian gold work in the world. Among the 55,000 pieces of ancient works by indigenous cultures of Colombia, you’ll see gold, pottery, rock, precious stones, and textiles, lending scientists and archaeologists insight into the cultures of South America civilizations prior to the arrival of Europeans.

Visit La Candelaria in daylight hours. You’ll find this the place to experience Bogota’s colorful, cultural heritage, as the neighborhood is full of art deco, Spanish colonial, and Baroque architecture. La Carrera Septima is a good beginning for wandering your way to La Candelaria.

Take in panoramic views of the city and faraway hills atop Monserrate Mountain, a 10,341-foot mountain with a 17th-century church, gardens, and a Colombian spiritual shrine. Ascend to the mountain by cable car, railway, or on foot. The cable car views are preferred by most visitors. On the mountain, you will also find a couple of restaurants and a market.

Climb the Serra da Cantareira high enough and you will take in a panoramic view of the city.

The Soccer Museum: The museum is located in the Pacaembu Stadium, and provides an amazing audiovisual experience.

In downtown Sao Paulo, go to the Liberdade district to visit Japanese Town, home to the largest Japanese community in the world outside Japan. Here, you’ll spot iconic red torii Shinto shrine gates lining the streets along with markets and restaurants.

Did you know? Among their influences in Brazil, Japanese immigrants introduced organized farming to the Amazon and initiated the commercial cultivation of pepper, putting Brazil on its way to being the world’s fourth largest producer of this spice.

Sao Paulo culinary experiences

Try what the locals love: Bacalhau is a Brazilian-adopted Portuguese dish containing onions, olives, tomatoes, potatoes, and herbs. Fried fish cakes (bolinho de bacalhau) are consumed with gusto (and often with beer). Tiny tasty rolls (pão de queijo) eaten typically for breakfast—you would call them “cheese bread”—with a cup of coffee with milk (pingado), found in Brazilian bakeries.

Experience the falafels, crispy on the outside and filled with goodness, at Tent of the Nile (Tenda do Nilo).

Taste an African-influenced fritter (acarajé) at Star City

Indulge your sweet tooth at Casa Mathilde.

Have an afternoon or evening drink at Frank Bar.

Dive into a coxinha at Bar do Luiz Fernandes.

Savor feijoada, Brazil’s beans-and-pork stew.

Swing into Caso do Sabor for a tropical chocolate experience, from those who best know cocoa beans and cacao.

Practice, Feedback, & Improve (Develop Skills)

June 27th, 2018 by

With any new skill that you learn, you need practice to implant the skill into long term memory. To get better at the skill, you need more practice and feedback (coaching).

The same is true of the skills you learn in a TapRooT® Course. You need to practice your new investigation and root cause analysis skills and get feedback (coaching) on ways to improve what you are doing.

Who will provide you with that feedback? Here are some ideas:

  1. Set up a peer review group. The members of this group should attend the 5-Day TapRooT® Advanced Root Cause Analysis Team Leader Training and have experience doing investigations.
  2. Have a senior manager become an expert in root cause analysis and provide feedback on investigations when performing senior manager reviews.
  3. Have experts from System Improvements review your incident investigations as they progress, CONTACT US to find out how to get these reviews scheduled.

If you have only attended the 2-Day TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis Course, consider attending the 5-Day TapRooT® Advanced Root Cause Analysis Team Leader Course. You will get more practice with the essential TapRooT® Techniques and learn the advanced techniques including:

  • Cognitive interviewing techniques
  • Critical Human Action Profile (CHAP)
  • Change Analysis
  • Proactive use of Safeguard Analysis
  • Equifactor® Equipment Troubleshooting

Plus you will discuss human error and ways to improve human performance.

Have you ever been to East Africa? When you arrive, you’ll find Kenya a stunning country of magnificent wildlife and pristine wilderness, recognized as a model for both wildlife management and sustainable tourism.

Here are a few bucket-list adventures awaiting you in Kenya:

If you’ve ever dreamed of going on safari or having a close-up wildlife experience, Kenya is surely the prized destination. From its capital, Nairobi, safaris allow you to witness millions of wildebeests, along with giraffes and migrating from Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park to the Maasai Mara Reserve in Kenya. You’ll never forget the trembling of the ground as hooves are pounding to their plunge into the Mara River, a dangerous but necessary leap for the wildebeests to reach the feast awaiting them on Kenya’s lush grazing grounds.

Amboseli National Park: You can view Tanzania’s 5,895m Mount Kilimanjaro from this park, as well as visit a Maasai village. Within the park are opportunities to see giraffes, jackals, hyenas, vervet monkeys, elephants, cheetahs, elands, waterbucks, warthogs, baboons, hartebeests, cranes, sunbirds, and more than 420 feathered and migratory species.

Lake Nakuru: See thousands of flamingos, both the black and white rhinos, waterbucks, zebras, buffalo, and the endangered Rothschild giraffe among the game in this region. The lake also provides one of your best opportunities to see leopards and a pride of lions.

Visit a conservancy and bond with a remarkable creature.

Learn some Kenyan culture and traditions.

Get your water sport on and your eyes full of the arresting beauty of Kenyan beaches: Mombasa, Malindi, Diani, and Lamu.

Indulge in some Swahili cuisine.

Check into seeing the Big Five (lion, African elephant, Cape buffalo, leopard, and rhinoceros) and these spectacular national parks.

Have breakfast with a giraffe.

As the largest city in South Africa, Johannesburg is the provincial capital and the center of the gold and diamond trade, due to its location in the Witwatersrand. The city’s Soweto township was home to Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu. You may hear the locals call it “Jozi, Joburg, or JHB.” By any of its names, Johannesburg has a robust arts and food scene and much beauty and history for you to discover.

For magnificent views, go up to the observation deck of the Carlton Tower, also known as “Top of Africa.” The 50-story building is also home to a shopping venue.

Come explore Reno while you learn TapRooT®!

Take a hike: When you’re downtown, follow the Hunter Creek Trail to the waterfall, or head south and hike up the Thomas Creek Trail to Dry Pond for terrific views of the city.

See the Reno Municipal Rose Garden: Certified by the American Rose Society, the garden in Idlewild Park spreads over one acre with 200 varieties of roses. Expect to see a fantastic display of blooms from early June through September.

Chill out on an island in downtown Reno: Wingfield Park on Belle Isle. Swim, picnic, relax by the water, hike or stroll the Riverwalk, or bike the Tahoe-Pyramid Bikeway—all in the green urban oasis on the Truckee River. Built into the river is the Truckee River Whitewater Park, where you can kayak, canoe or raft, or tube the Class 2 to 3 course. 

Experience local art and sculpture alongside fine art in downtown Reno’s culture and arts district. The Nevada Museum of Art is designed around themes of land and environment. The Stremmel Gallery features contemporary work from European and American artists.

Experience Amsterdam

In northwestern Europe, Amsterdam is known for its tulip fields, canals and windmills, cycling, the Van Gogh museum and the house where Jewish diarist Anne Frank hid during WWII, and works from Rembrandt and Vermeer at the Rijiksmuseum.

Take a tour—by canal boat, dinner cruisebike, walking, Hop-on Hop-off bus, or helicopter. Just decide how and what you want to see, then connect with the tour that fits your preferences. 

Dam Square is for meeting up, people-watching, and plotting your day while being in the company of the beautiful Royal Palace and in the center of the city.

Walk five minutes from Dam Square to the Amsterdam Museum, an essential for getting inside of Amsterdam’s history, folklore, social patterns, subcultures, and artistic expression.

Amsterdam’s oldest building and oldest parish church, Oude Kerk was founded circa 1213.

Anne Frank House: See where Anne kept her diary and went into hiding. Insider tip: Buy your ticket early as possible as they sell out very quickly; they are made available on the website two months in advance.

The Rijksmuseuma Dutch national museum dedicated to arts and history, is in the Amsterdam South borough, close to the Van Gogh Museum, the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, and the Concertgebouw.

You don’t have to travel outside the city to see the icons that helped the Dutch fight water shortages. There are at least eight windmills inside the city.

Did you know that there are more bicycles than people in Amsterdam? 

 

Amsterdam eateries

Try Pofertjes (petite fluffy buckwheat pancakes, served with powdered sugar), Appeltaart, or Stroopwafels (chewy waffles), among the delicacies to sample in Amsterdam.

Cocotte: Stop in this French-style crêperie in the heart of Amsterdam, offering breakfast, lunch, dinner, and coffee.

Toscanini: A local favorite with a 30-year history. Italian menu with a choice of antipasti, primi, secondi, and dolci. Excellent wine list.

De Foodhallen: Take a bite out of the Dutch street food scene where there’s something for everybody. In this former tram depot, you can savor soft-shell crab buns or fish tacos at Le Big Fish; enjoy a bitterbal at De Ballenbar; relish burgers at the Butcher; tuck into hot dogs at Bulls & Dogs; head for Vet View and some Vietnamese street food; droll over the BBQ pork at Rough Kitchen; satisfy your sweet tooth at Le Petit Gateau; or go for Mediterranean fare at Maza. There’s even more choices at De Foodhallen, none of them dull.

Oriental City B.V.In Amsterdam’s “Wallen” area, Oriental City is a local crowd favorite. Extensive menu, with the dim sum among the best in town.

Proeflokaal Arendsnest: Taste the creativity in the craft beer scene here in Amsterdam at this canal-side beer bar on the Herengracht. Choose from around 50 Dutch beers on tap and 100 bottled beers. 

Thrill Grill: Craving a burger? Diners queue up here for such creations as the classic all-beef Thriller, a salmon or veggie falafel burgers, or the Purist, which is a burger with gravy. Four city locations, with the Gerard Doustraat location receiving the best scores for ambiance.

Try this: The Netherlands is famous for its cheese, so go for a cheese and wine tasting session.
