Violent crime is a very, VERY serious problem. I try not to leave my apartment at all other than to do just the absolutely necessary. Leaving at night is an immediate death sentence. During the day, it's better but still extremely dangerous. People will shoot you, stab you, or do God knows what to steal your phone. This is without mentioning terrorist attacks by different rebel groups in Colombia, but that's a whole other topic.
Overall, being in Bogotá feels more like surviving against all odds than actually living a decent, safe, and bearable life.
