Hey Ben. So how was your trip to Colombia?
It was great. I saw a lot of beautiful places, met a lot of cool people and ate a lot of great food.
Oh really? Where did you go first?
I went to Bogota first.
Is Bogota the capital?
Yeah…. It’s the capitol city and the largest city in the country.
How long did you stay there?
I was only there for about 4 days.
Nice. So where else did you go?
I went to Medellin, Cali, and Cartagena but I enjoyed Medellin and Cali more.
Oh? What happened in Cartagena?
I partied too much and I lost my wallet one night.
That’s too bad. Sooo did you meet any girls?
Reggy. I can’t tell you that.
Ok ok. So did your Spanish get any better?
A lot better. I could speak a bit before I left, but now I can understand a lot more.
You should go next summer. I am sure you will love it.
Yeah… I think I will. Ok …cool. So where are you going to go next?
Probably Cuba. Or maybe I’ll just go back to Colombia again.
Can I come?
