The following email is from our Smartours tour guide in Colombia, South America. We toured the country last September. Leon Pardo lives in Bogata with his wife Diana and his baby Juanita. Everyone on the tour fell in love with Leon because he was just a “gute neshome,” Yiddish for good soul.
He was extremely knowledgeable and went out of his way to provide unique experiences for all of us. Leon’s wife was in the last stages of pregnancy when we were touring. We just wanted to send a gift when the baby arrived.
It took us a little longer than expected because we were concerned about safe mail delivery. It turned out to be a lot easier than we thought. Leon is on tour now, but sent us this thank you email. We were so thrilled to reconnect with him. Thank you for emails and social media. We will stay friends forever.
Just for the record, Colombia was one of the best places we ever visited. Yes, Leon had a lot to do with it.
