International evening "Meet the world": Colombia 22.04.2010

The April edition of international discussion evenings Meet the World teleported us to Colombia. We visited the country of orchids, coffee and emeralds with two interesting guests. Colombian Isabel Diaz Forero is currently broadening her academic horizons as a PhD student at Estonian University of Life Sciences in Tartu, whereas Kadri Green is an Estonian who has a great passion for Colombian culture. She has upgraded her interest in the country by visiting it as a volunteer for several times and studying Spanish and Spanish literature.

We dropped numerous negative media stereotypes about the country’s famous drug-trafficking and criminal reputation. After hearing astonishing stories we agreed that country’s official motto is correct: Colombia is a passion!
