Cali, Colombia

Andoke Foundation

A scalable map of Colombia with the bonus of a butterfly house. 

In the hills above Cali is a smaller-scale, scalable map of Colombia with hanging gardens, ponds, and statues of animals.

It’s directly adjacent to a butterfly house with 15 species of native butterflies, along with jewelry made from dead butterflies (hey, they die anyway; might as well make something pretty with them). The whole thing is part of the Fundación Andoke, or the Andoke Foundation — a group of folks who designed an eco-centric educational program for kids and adults alike in order to promote and conserve Colombia’s biodiversity with regards to its natural environment, hydrography, and other natural highlights. If you’ve wanted to travel across Colombia in less than an hour, this is the place to do it.
