life in Bogota (Bogotá)

Hi everyone. There is a possible opportunity for me to move to Bogota in about 12 months for work. I work in the mining industry and have a young family. I have lived in Latin America before, in Chile and Mexico. I am Australian and my wife is Chilean. I am bi-lingual, so the language isn't a problem. I want to know what life is like for expats in Bogota. How is it for small kids and women? What is the cost of living? How is the traffic and public transport? How is the security? What is the social scene like? etc. I just don't know much about the place. Any feedback would be welcome.
