Comment on Contributed Story: Teaching at Colombian Colegios (a Warning) by Dan Sun, 19 Apr 2015 00:18:07 +0000 I currently work at one of the best private schools in Bogota. Is it hard? You bet! it is not always easy but it is rewarding. In fact, I would describe it as being a roller coaster ride. Some of the children are incredibly driven and hard working. Some of them lack motivation but it is up to the teacher to push their students. Granted it is sometimes difficult. I admit, some of the children are spoiled and I really think they do not realize just how lucky they are, and they are not seizing the amazing opportunity they have. I know my students strengths and weaknesses and change the activities according to preference. It sounds like the author just wanted to extend their UNI years or relive them. But working at a school, one must be responsible and strive to keep an open mind. If one thing does not work, try another.

I will admit, some of the children just never want to meet you halfway, or they ask you to just “give” them points, never wanting to earn them. But others refuse to be given anything easily and always want to challenge themselves.

Comment on Colombian Food: Worst of the Worst by Alejandro Fri, 10 Apr 2015 04:47:48 +0000 Alejandro, asian-hispanic, a food enthusiast and a social scientist.

I would like to answer the above comments especially the negative ones about Colombia. First and fore most hahaha, hhaha .

It was really intelligent as well as informative though . But anyway, most of the people around the world has different taste buds. These salivary structures in your tongue has different anatomy.

The tongue in each country has a unique taste structures when it comes to flavors. So depending where or what region and country you have eaten your lunch or snack.

Every country represents different food preparations.Be it, the general appearance, taste or so called the “luck of tastiness ” (umami). Further food relies of whatever abundant material, resources, and skills they may have.

This material culture (food) is past down as form of symbolic representations. The so called worst for you, is good for them. Because you are just accustomed differently or you were all been eating your comfort preparations (food)

For many years , the people generally accepts this material culture (food). Now in some cases if try to sell your blue-cheese somewhere in Asia. It will just end in garbage. Because taste-buds are different.

So, Colombia just have simple cooking preparations.

I think respect is nothing new, I presume. And if all of you are really interested in writing out commentaries. I advice that it needs more critical thinking rather than spicy comments.

Years ago I also have a same experiences with places where I gone to.
