Round Square Exchange - Colombia

By Fiora Moscuzza, Year 12

In October 2019 I spent three weeks on a Round Square exchange in Colombia. For the first two weeks I stayed with a host family in Bogotá, attending school from Monday to Friday. 

At the weekends I was shown different parts of the city, immersing myself in Colombian Spanish and culture. On my final week I was fortunate enough to participate in a trip to the Colombian and Peruvian parts of the Amazon Rainforest.
 


During the trip I took part in various different activities, some of the highlights included:

  • Spending a night in the house of an indigenous family, learning about their way of life.
  • Zip lining through the rainforest.  
  • Sleeping outside in a hammock in the middle of the jungle. 
  • Kayaking down the river, being surrounded by the biodiversity of the jungle. 

 


The whole experience was a huge eye opener for me. Not only did my Spanish improve significantly, moreover I experienced the culture, society and beauty of the country, making lifelong friends from across the world.
