Jon Stibbs
A new resident in Bogota, Colombia; Jon is a Londoner by nature who naturally misses pubs and pies. A lot. However, he is enjoying exploring Bogota’s baked street-food, while discovering the city’s even finer dining.
After nearly two years in La Paz, he quickly adjusted to Bogota’s surfeit of oxygen and good restaurants. Slightly frustratingly, his search for a bar serving the perfect dry martinis was met with immediate success.
Once the owner/chef of a luxury breakfast delivery business for the lucky denizens of north London, he’s now much happier to stay in bed and then cook for himself.
Jon is so happy in his home in the restaurant-rich Macarena district of Colombia’s capital that he may even learn the dance. He currently works for The Tablet, and UNICEF among others.
