As part of our weekly Speak-Bogotá meetings, this Saturday we will have an interesting presentation by our guest speaker for this session, Shehla Burney, a Colombian-Pakistani who will talk to us about some scenic places close to Bogotá. Shela will talk for about 15 minutes, and then there will be a space for Q&A and comments. Afterwards, we will hold our regular conversation class.

The whole session will be guided by Analita Mulligan, a native English speaker, English instructor and CEO of LIOB – Language Institute of Bogotá.

Guest for the 3rd Speak-Bogotá session:

Shehla Burney is a Colombian - Pakistani currently living in Bogota, Colombia. After working as an accountant for several years in the financial, educational and oil industries, she decided to work as a licensed translator. She is always enthusiastic about cultural exchange, meeting new people and exploring new places. During her free time, she enjoys traveling, salsa dancing, hiking and training Tae Bo.

Talk’s Theme: "This talk is about four interesting natural sites, surrounding Bogota. In fact, many locals don't know about these places, which would make for excellent plans on the weekends. I will give some detailed information about them, including how to get there, why they are appealing and what activities can be done there. These places are the Nemocon Salt Mine, and the Chingaza, Chicaque and Pionono parks."
