Impressions from Colombia

This summer, right after the examination period I travelled to Colombia. Flying to Bogota and then onwards to Cali, where my girlfriends mother lives, I got to know a remarkable country that was ridden by violence and conflict for a long time.

I was amazed to see how the private initiative of this energetic people start to transform and reshape the country.

Most of the 3 1/2 weeks I stayed in Colombia, I was in Cali, Cartagena on the Caribbean coast and in the countryside around Cali. I attach some of my impressions.
