At the beginning of the year, my younger brother and cousin moved to Bogotá where they accepted positions teaching English through one of Colombia’s government sanctioned schools, SENA. After months of tracking their progress and adventures through Facebook and Skype, I couldn’t take it anymore and booked a flight.
We spent our time together exploring the city. There were Peruvian feasts in the trendy neighborhood of La Macarena, people watching in the historic Plaza de Bolivar and during Cyclovía, perusing the Usaquen Flea Market and wandering the halls of the Botero Museum.
It was fantastic to have my own personal tour guides! I’m so happy to see how well the boys have acclimated to life in Bogotá. Their Spanish is fluent, and they’ve grown as individuals. I’m so proud of them.
