A NEW TRIP IN THE PLANNING

Panoramica_de_Medellin-ColombiaHello friends!

Since it has been a little bit quiet from us here at Carlings For Colombia this summer, we thought we’d give you a little update on our plans.

Sometime during the next two months our plan is to travel to Colombia to see how things are. We want to meet the fantastic people there, have them tell their stories and get an even stronger connection with this complex and amazing country. We are also once again very curious to see the work that the Red Cross are doing up close.

The exact date, travel party and destination is not 100% confirmed yet, this is still in the making, but the plan is to bring back documentation of it. Who knows, maybe we’ll make a video of it? You’ll read about it here.

We thank you for your patience and understanding and we are REALLY looking forward to getting the wheels rolling again on this amazing project.

Stay safe & be nice & we’ll keep you updated very soon.

Peace!

 

 

Cool Colombian Summer Drink

Screen Shot 2017-07-12 at 13.21.27Summertime’s here and you need something to keep you cool” – David Lee Roth, 1978

We are going loco in the summer heat and therefore also going completely off topic… it’s probably time to cool down… Anyways, we have the perfect Colombian summer drink recipe for you. It’s tasty & refreshing, sweet & delish! 

Limonada de Sandía (Watermelon Limeade) is a simple mixture of watermelon, lime juice, water and a dash of sugar and makes the perfect summertime drink.

Here’s what:

  • 8 cups watermelon, cubed
  • 1/4 cup sugar or to your taste
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • Ice for serving

Here’s how:

  1. Place the watermelon, sugar and 1/4 cup of water in a blender. Purée until smooth. Strain the watermelon through a strainer and discard the pulp.
  2. In a pitcher, combine all the ingredients and serve over ice. Garnish with lime slices.

Peace!
