Andrew, a young tourist in Medellín, gets off at the wrong bus stop and doesn't know where he is. A young Colombian man, Andrés, offers to drive him back to his hotel, but not before he has visited his grandma, been to the tailor's and done some other shopping. Andrew is being drawn into the daily life of Medellín, and soon finds out that not only the way of life, but also the local variant of Spanish is very different from what he is used to.

"It is a humorous story that shows a deep love for the inhabitants of Medellín. I recognize the awkwardness of the tourist, and was touched by the matter-of-fact way in which Andrew is welcomed into Andrés' family circle."

 

Information for teachers

Muchos libros culturales están enfocados en lugares turísticos famosos, esos que salen en las revistas, periódicos y canales de YouTube, y a los que todo el mundo va. Pero pocos son los que hablan de los valores culturales, de las costumbres y de la forma de ser de los habitantes del lugar. Y son estas formas de ser, estas costumbres y estos valores los que impactan a los que vienen de afuera. Son estos los que hacen que la gente quiera volver. Medellín tiene lugares turísticos muy reconocidos, sin embargo, lo que más llama la atención de los visitantes no son estos lugares sino su gente. Este es el espíritu del libro, mostrar la calidad humana de los colombianos, y en este caso específico, de los habitantes de Medellín: los paisas.
