Last day in Bogotá

23 Aug

A week full of interviews and packing in the last of the Bogotá sites has left quite a bit of work for me upon return.   I’ve learned so much.  I really want to thank Jairo Arboleda for his patience in explaining and sometimes reexplaining what the context of Colombia means for INGO intervention and partnership, the end of the war, and so much more.  Jairo was a personal professor for me which goes along with a lot of mentorship.  I look up to Jairo for many reasons, but mostly because of his frankness and sober approach to polemic issues.

I have to get up for my flight in 3 1/2 hrs, so I’d better hit the sack, but this blog has not yet been concluded!  What a wonderful and rico summer it has been.

Cuando vuelvo? No sé, pero espero que sea prontico.

Saludos,
Lindsey
