Okay, I need to know about Bogota. 

I know, that's not a first sentence you expected to see. Eli 20.10 has landed a summer job in Columbia through sheer force of will. 

I'm not going to tell you the name of the organization (until after the summer is over), but for someone whose career specialty is going to be post-conflict consensus building, it's what he says is the single best place in the world for him to get real experience in his field. 

Their website specifically said they had no jobs available, so Eli emailed every single address listed on the website (twelve of them), explaining his credentials and why he wanted to work for them over the summer. 

No one responded. 

A week later, he emailed all of them again. Last Thursday, they emailed him back, and he was on a Zoom call with eight people on Friday (in Spanish). And now he has a job. 

This means he'll be in Bogota for 2-4 weeks this summer. That's what it's looking like for now, at least. I don't get attached to any particular version of his future because it tends to change so quickly.

So if you have any personal experience in Bogota, I'd really like to hear from you. Thanks.
