The photo competition on the May theme of ‘friendship’ was won by Bethan Wiley, with these two colourful photos from Colombia:

children in a wheelbarrow‘In my first week of being in Colombia I travelled to the picturesque colonial town of Villa de Leyva with some new friends of mine. The people in this town are some of the friendliest people I’ve met here and these children were more than happy to pose for a photo in their unique form of transport!’




‘This was taken on day trip to the lake of Guatavita (supposedly home to the myth of ‘El Dorado’) with friends from my Spanish class in the National University. The trek to the lake from the nearby town was much more of a challenge than we’d anticipated so we were grateful when a passing Colombian man offered us a lift in the back of his pick-up truck. Despite the ride being a bit on the bumpy side it was a truly unforgettable Colombian experience!’
