Testimony about a semester in Utopia (Yopal, Colombia)
Testimony about a semester in Utopia (Yopal, Colombia) during 28/08/19 and 16/12/19
"These 4 months spent in Utopia with the four other french students were just amazing and unforgettable !!
Thanks to teachers, students and all the people in Utopia, we have learned so much ! And thanks Diana for taking care of us so kindly in Bogota.
Firstly, we have discovered an agriculture with a tropical climat as for example pineapple, rice, passion fruit, cocoa and coffee. What a good experience to work in the fields with a machete and a billhook !
Secondly, we have learnt so much about Colombia. Listening day by day colombians’ stories about their life was touching, enriching, and allowed us to have a very different vision of Colombia.
Finally, we have learnt also about ourselves. We know how to live in a country with another language, in a new environment, another way of thinking. We were able to find our strengths and weaknesses. We are much more open-minded and come back to France with the desire to continue discovering the world.
A travel of life".
