    Hi Addie, Thanks a lot for your comments! Getting to know a country by its food is a really good choice. Colombia has a diverse gastronomic offer and you can get to know the local culture when interacting with vendors at the food markets, speaking to locals and trying many kinds of food. We are happy to see that you enjoyed your cooking class and had a fun day with Diana. It was a pleasure to be your hosts in Colombia and hope to have you back soon! Kind regards, Paula Duarte
