They really do more than pay lip service to family values here. Today we went to Accion’s holiday party. It was at an amazing parilla (indoor/outdoor restaurant that grills most of its food) with beautiful grounds and activities for the kids. While the adults socialized and played team building games, the kids painted pottery, prepared food for the animals (chickens, goats, bunnies, llamas, birds and ostriches), fed the animals, made pizza, baked cookies, played mini-golf and went on a scavenger hunt. Phewww! I feel exhausted just thinking of all of those activities but the kids loved it! They also all got really nice gifts as part of the holiday celebration.
What’s amazing here is that restaurants like these are all over the place in Colombia. There are so many places with great food and mountain views for the grown-ups and activities for the kids. I keep wondering why we don’t have this in the States. It’s wonderful! Grown-ups can talk while the kids are entertained. Business idea?
