Letter from Colombia


1. Can you match the photos with the places in my letter?

2. Can you find the places I visited on a map?

G'day students!

I hope you are studying hard? I am enjoying Colombia. At the moment my wife and I are at Santa Marta. Santa Marta is very modern and looks like the Gold Coast. It is nice and warm here - about 31 degrees! I know it is cold in Melbourne. Somebody told me it was 4 degrees the other day?

When we arrived we stayed in the capital city, Bogota for three days. In Bogota we went to the wonderful Gold Museum. It is full of Pre-Hispanic treasures made of gold.

After that, we flew to the beautiful Caribbean city of Cartagena which is very old and has beautiful streets. It also has double storey, town houses.

Our third destination was Mompox, 9 hours from the coast. The road was rough and muddy. Mompox is an old colonial town on the Magdalena River. It was built in the 16th century by the Spanish.

We are now back on the coast enjoying the sun.

Write to me if you like. You can leave a comment below or send me an email. Marion, Anne and Molly know my email address.

Best wishes amigos!

Your teacher,
