Following a fruitful year with WorldTeach, I got a paid showing offer in Cartagena de Indias, Bolivar where I as of now live and work, showing ninth, tenth and eleventh grade English writing and exploratory writing.

K: I made a trip to many places last year along the beautiful Colombian coast including towns like St Nick Marta, Cartagena de Indias and Palomino. I dared to the delightful urban communities of Guayaquil, Ecuador and satisfied a long lasting fantasy about seeing Lima Perú; yet, the spot I became hopelessly enamored with was Isla San Andrés in Colombia, where I visited in October 2014. This little, seahorse-molded island in the Caribbean lies nearer to Nicaragua than
Colombia, and brags the “damage de siete colores,” the “ocean of seven tones,” as well as a laid-back way of life, scrumptious food, stunning view and grinning local people. Isla San Andrés caught my heart with its mind boggling cays, cordial individuals and heavenly food like rondon (a coconut-milk based fish soup).
This get-away came at an ideal time, when school felt excruciating and the sizzling intensity of Barranquilla had died down into heavy rainstorms that turn the roads to surging streams.

K: Para Usted San Andrés, a huge hardback photograph book at the George Washington Library of the Centro Social Colombo-Americano in Barranquilla provoked my curiosity in the beautiful Colombian island.
Having lived on the Caribbean island of Antigua as a little kid, I felt a liking to the photographs of grinning individuals in splendidly hued garments and bushels of new fish being dragged away minuscule fishing vessels, in addition to standing by listening to reggae music on a white sand ocean side with gem blue water as the sun sets on another ravishing day.
The sentimentality – as well as the craving for something tropical in Colombia on a worker’s financial plan – drove me to investigate the different culture and history of Isla San Andrés.
