gentlemen had a busy schedule which began with a visit to the
Las Tascas celebration on Thursday night. Salsa and merengue dance
lessons were on Friday afternoon and were conducted by three of
the TLC translators. (The lessons were a great help later during
the events.) On Friday and Saturday the men enjoyed a warm reception
from the ladies of Cali. Afterwards, it was obviously that several
of the men had found their future wives.
we visited the Cali Viejo Restaurant. Located in a botantical
garden, it was an extremely romantic place for our lunch. One
or our translators, Claudia, is a professional singer and she
entertained the TLC group with some traditional Colombian love
songs. Our guests enjoyed strolling among the tropical trees,
plants, ducks and turtles. After lunch many of our guests visited
the Cali zoo since it is an easy 5 minute walk from the restaurant.
meeting was held on Friday morning and the men attending generously
donated over $600 to a local orphanage that TLC assists. We wish
to thank those gentlemen for their compassionate contributions.
Claudia appears in our Spring 2003
magazine - she is still available
