Live the sabrosura, the flavor, the vibe, the motion of Bogotá, Colombia's capital. From world famous coffee to the cumbia dance, from modern skyscrapers to Spanish colonial architecture, Bogotá is a dynamic blend of the historical and the new. Take in a beautiful view of the city from the famous Monserrate cathedral. View Colombian painter Fernando Botero's works in person, at his museum in the historic Candelaria neighborhood. Attend one of Bogota's many art fairs, fashion weeks, and festivals or spend a night out on the town with new friends. A thriving economic center of about 8 million people, Bogotá sits at the helm of Colombia's revival and transformation.
With the densest biodiversity per square kilometer in the world and access to the Andes Mountains, the Amazon rain forest, and the Caribbean and Pacific coastlines, Colombia is by definition a blend of climates, ecosystems, and cultures. Given the amazing range of natural attractions here, it’s no wonder the country is an up-and-coming adventure tourism destination. Even if you’re not a big outdoors explorer, Colombia has plenty of great experiences in store for you: watch the whales breaching in the ocean off the western coast, learn how to salsa dance in Cali, breathe in the fragrance of Medellin’s annual flower festival, or spend a day touring a coffee plantation. Colombia has something for everyone. Come see for yourself.
Ahmad is originally from Cairo, Egypt, where he lived for 22 years. His first foray into study abroad came when he lived in the U.S. as an exchange student during his senior year of high school. That experience inspired him to work in international education, where he has built his career over the past decade. After graduating with a BA in International Relations from the American University in Cairo, Ahmad immigrated to the U.S. in 2001, where he pursued his graduate studies at DePaul University and studied abroad in The Netherlands as part of the Summer Institute on Sexuality, Culture, and Society.
