Last week I had the privilege to return from a 9 day trip to Colombia! It was such a beautiful experience, I had never been to Colombia before, neither was I at all informed with food or customs. The trip was put together by a church group, and together we visited a Pastor and his church in Pereira, Colombia. Needless to day, Colombia is a beautiful country with beautiful humid climate, green landscape all around, and beautiful people. During our trip we were able to see so many things from abundant cows and horses, to a little monkey. The food there was delicious, arepas are the trademark food in Colombia (or so I heard), it is basically like a Mexican tortilla except really thick. They were really fun and different to try, since I had never had them before, what makes Colombian food special in my opinion, is how they mix sweet flavors with fresh cheese, a very interesting combination.
The trip was a blessing and getting away for a week amid the busyness and chaos of life was really nice and refreshing.It was great to see another perspective of the Christian church, as well learn from other strategies that are being used in the church. Dominic was able to come as well, it was the first time we travel out of the country together so it was so much fun to experience this beautiful country with him.
We arrived in Medellin, Colombia
Our first try at Colombian food, arepa con queso!
Parque de los pies descalsos (Park of bare feet), Medellin, Colombia
This place was absolutely amazing, this park is dedicated to waking up the senses, so the park is divided into parts where visitors are encouraged to walk around barefoot and experience the sand, water, grass, as well as other textures around the park. The end consist of washing your feet off, and experiencing amazingly soft feet after the treatment!
Some lunch with our trip-mates.
Dominic was willing to try everything! Colombian food consist of a lot of pork and banana, I loved the banana part of it, the pork.. not so much.
Here’s my attempt at black and whites, personally I don’t often edit black and white but I liked how these turned out:
