Visit the central park of Envigado to just look around and see how Colombian locals live their lives—what they buy, eat, etc.
A few blocks from the school there is “plaza de mercado,” place where you will find fresh veggies and fruits. For example, tell the vendor that you’re going to prepare your own salpicón (fruit salade) and ask him what fruits he recommends to you.
Go to a local tienda (shop) or panadería (bakery) for breakfast. A simple sentence like “lindo día ¿no?” is guaranteed the beginning of a nice conversation to try out everything you’ve learned in class!
Give your body and brain a rest during the weekends and go on a nature hike in “El Parque El Salado” to take in some green energy and bathe in a waterfall — only 15 minutes away from the school!
