In the Geo Quiz, we’re looking for the Moon City. So where is it? For starters it’s not on the moon. Rather it’s in Cundinamarca, one of the 30 or so states that make up Colombia. Cundinamarca is near the center of Colombia, its capital is the mega city of Bogotá.
So the town we’re looking for is just a several miles north of Bogotá. It’s name derives from the Chibchan language, though it’s not a language you’re likely to hear – because it’s considered extinct. It was once spoken by the South American Indians who lived near Bogotá before the Spanish conquest – but the Chibchan word for “moon” is the name of the town we’re after. These days, some might just call this town “carne.”
