How I found my new family
I have not been in touch with you my dear readers for some time. And there is one simple reason for that because I have been travelling with Carlos and Edie for 3 weeks through Colombia. Beautiful country with many colors, warm hearts people, great services, high safety, clean environment and magical nature and food.
I have that great opportunity to visit few cities and make picture for myself about Colombia. Once you enter insight you will have open mouth and eyes. There are so many things to see that you will never get bored. We have been very lucky, because our family is large and we could have stayed in their good hands and enjoy family feelings.
During our journey we have visited:
In the farm “Que pa que mas” near by Pereira
Near by the Pereira are located two theme parks. One is Parque del Cafe and the another is Pargue de Agropecultura “PANACA”. Both parks are introducing part of the Colombian culture. Parque del Cafe is talking about the production of delicious Colombian Coffee and PANACA is introducing the life and importance of village for cities.
“Without village there is no city” (Sin campo no hay ciudad!)
Salento – there was held our family reunion “Boterada 2010”
Bogota – as all capital cities Bogota is very busy, full of people, traffic and whole environment is too rushy for me. I prefer calmer places and nature. Although in Bogota U can find different museums (Museum del Oro, Botero Museum), famous Monserate monastir and various entertainment activities.
Near by Bogota is one of the biggest world attraction. There is located the biggest cathedral in the world. It is made from Salt.
And a bit further you can find the legendary Lake in Guatape which is known as “El Dorado” – lake where indigenous where sacrificing golden artifacts and Spanish wanted to pick all the gold from this lake for their selfish needs.
And after great time in the Bogota, the rushy capital we moved to Cartajena. Typical sea side and coast city. With warm weather and 90% humidity. Cartajena reminded me a lot Venecia with its narrow streets, colorful houses and sea smell. Cartajena has very beautiful historical down town with castle on the hill and newly build hotel side in Boca Grande.
And what I have learned being there?
- That Colombia produce great coffee
- That Colombia honor its people who are working in the countryside and are bringing food on their table.
- That Colombia is safe, the news and media made bubble from conflicts which are based on very little area compare to the whole country.
- That Colombia has great services, people are unbelievebly polite, buses are on time, people are helpful in any time.
- That Colombia has many faces. You can find mountains, low lands, high lands. It has both seas Caribbean and Atlantic.
And Only thing which can threaten you in Colombia is the fact that you would love to stay there forever.
