Listen to the Story.

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 Bogot-.

So the town we're looking for is just a several miles north of Bogot-. 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 Bogot- 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.�

Geo Answer:

The answer is Chia, about 45 minutes north of Bogota.Anchor Marco Werman takes us to a restaurant in Chia where owner Andres Jaramillo has transformed food and entertainment planning into a fine art.
