Cathy Joe's Amazing Safari travel blog


I have been searching high and low for a school to study Spanish. Who would of thought it would be so emotionally taxing and bloody annoying. I have talked to so many Teachers, Deans and bullshitters. I dont know who to believe...

And its bloody $$$$$...

If I dont get something soon, I am jetting to Mexico, screw this learn Colombian Spanish crap!!!

Finally one more phone call for the day... to ISSO, whatever that is....

I finally get to speak to someone who speaks English and is ironically from AMERICA.. This could be a bad thing, I immediately thought to myself. Last thing I need today is some Arrogant American right now...

AFter about ten minutes of chatting about our home Countries, we got down to business .. talked prices.. for Spanish lessons... hmmnn.. You want me to pay what?? This guy must be crazy, I am NOT paying 26,000 pesos per hour for 5 months of classes. Who does he think I am.. OH, a rich Canadian, I reckon. I will have to just fill him in on exactly who I am... a broke Canadian... LOL...

I got him laughing and then later persuaded him for a discount.. he went down to 23,000... Not good enough. He soon realized I had indeed been traveling the World with my bargaining abilities and got a littel strong with me... I got him laughing some more and asked for a further reduction.... Oh.. I am pushing it.. This time he needs to call his collegue in Bogota... oh oh....

I was surprised to get his call.. he accepted my offer on the condition I pay for hours upfront. OK I can do that, heres my Credit Card!!!

Inbetween our shenanigans... I got to know him a little. A once cruising the street Texan brat, originally from Croatia and has lived here for twelve years. So, I now officially know a Texan Croatian-Colombian. This will make for great misdeeds, indeed!!

Has been with his adoring wife for ten years, has two gorgeous babies and picked his wife up when she was 17... Well-- I let him have it for that, and we hadn't even settled our business deal yet.... Halarious.......... We are friends now...

After two or so hours... The deal was set... He now has a Canadian student. Does he know what he got himself into, is the Question???
