Advanced 9: Paz en Colombia

To many people, Colombia still has a reputation as a dangerous, risky place to visit. Is this still true? Liz and Rob discuss danger in Colombia, and the recent peace negotiations.

Transcript

Rob: Hola Liz, ¿qué tal?

Lis: ¿Hola Rob? ¡Muy bien! ¿Tú cómo estás?

Rob: Perfecto, gracias. Y hoy vamos a hablar de un tema que hemos, a lo mejor, esquivado un poco hasta ahora. Así que Liz, yo te tengo una pregunta. Tú, siendo colombiana, aunque viviendo en Londres, ¿tú crees que Colombia es seguro?

Lis: 00:30 Sólo llevo dos años, casi dos años en Londres. Y el resto de mi vida fue en Colombia, en Bogotá, varias ciudades. Y siempre todas las ciudades que visité y en donde estuve puedo decir que son lugares muy seguros.

Rob: ¿Nunca has tenido ningún problema?

Since we’ve recorded this podcast, there has been a huge amount of progress towards achieving a lasting peace in Colombia. An initial agreement was made and put to public vote in late 2016. Surprisingly, this did not pass the referendum – the agreement was then altered and ratified via congress, and is due to go into effect.
