Ulricianer abroad [10/x]: „The people in Colombia are friendlier!“
Also Sebastian did a sort of exchange exchange and is back in town now. Irina and Marthe asked him about his experiences in Colombia.
Where have you been and how long?
I was in Bogota, that is the capital of Colombia, at my grandparents‘ home with my family that lives there.
I stayed there for five months during the schooltime.
School is our next question. Could you tell us what your regulary day was like?
On school days I woke up at 5:20 am and at 6:20 am I caught the bus to get to school.
School in Colombia starts at 7:20 am and ends at 04.00 pm.We had luchtime at 2:30 pm.
Often I was at home at 5 or 6 o’clock in the evening because of the trafic in the city.
That seems to be a lot of school, so what about freetime?
Well being so long in school was really exhausting but when I had the power to that after school I played soccer in my housing area. On weekends I met friends, went to the cinema or played soccer again.
Can you describe your surroundings?
In Colombia you can find three different climatic areas: The Andes, the rainforest and the coast. I stayed in the center of the country.

What is the main difference between Germany and Colombia?
The people! They are friendlier and more open-minded than German people. This positive thinking is catching. But the security is a different thing. Many houses are in a housing estate sourrounded by walls and protected by guards.
Y ahora la última pregunta, cual fue el highlight de tu viaje?
En las vacaciones viaje con mi familia a Argentina y Brasil, fue increíble!
Muchas gracias por tu tiempo.
