Summer vacation

Summer vacation is a school break in summer between school years and the break in the school academic year. Students are typically off between eight and nine weeks, but not staff, depending on the country and district. In the United States, summer break is approximately two and a half months, with students typically finishing the school year between late-May and late-June and starting the new year between early-August and early-September. In Azerbaijan, Spain, Portugal, Republic of Ireland, Italy, Greece, Georgia, Lithuania, Latvia, Lebanon, Romania and Russia, the summer break is normally three months, compared to three to six weeks (sometimes 2 months) in Australia, Brazil, the United Kingdom, Pakistan, Bangladesh, India, Denmark, the Netherlands, and Germany.


As different as the countries' work cultures are, there is one key similarity — both Japanese and American employees work long hours and do not take many vacations compared to other developed countries.

Japan is notorious for its long work hours. There is even a phenomenon in the country where people have died from working too much. It is called karoshi, which literally means "death by overwork."

But according to data from the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, American workers clocked in more average annual hours than Japanese workers in 2016.

Furthermore, the average American employee only takes about half of their allotted paid time off or vacation time, according to a 2017 report by Glassdoor. And over 60% of respondents reported working during vacations.

Similarly, a survey by Expedia found that Japanese workers only take around half of their vacation days, and many workers reported feeling guilty whenever they took time off.


Tips for Women in Colombia

1. There tends to be much less honesty and clarity in male-female relationships than you might expect at home.

Therefore, it can be tricky to spot a cheater or a player. Try not to get taken in or carried away by a dark eyed Don Juan who flashes his cash. He may well have another mamita down the way. Ask questions, pay attention and most importantly trust your gut.

2. Speaking of which, the man will almost always offer to pay.

That is not to say that you should necessarily let him, or think you’ll insult him by refusing. Go with how you feel. He’ll probably appreciate you insisting on splitting the bill, if you decide to offer.

3. Unlike in England, a girl is not considered cold, uninterested, or frigid for not ‘putting out’ early on in the relationship, or kissing on the first date.

It’s the opposite here – no matter how hard the guy tries to fight it, there’s a machista part of him that wants you to hold out and let him chase you. Take it from me, he wants to work for it. I recommend holding out as much as you can.

4. If a Colombian man says: “I’ll call you later today,” he probably won’t.

Sorry if that offends anyone. But to be polite here, people automatically say, “I’ll ring you back,” even if they have no intention of it – it’s not taken as literally as it is in England. No need to take it personally, it’s quite common.

5. Colombian men have, as a rule, a far more sensitive ego than English guys.

What would pass for light hearted banter in the UK, might well make a Colombian question his own masculinity. Take care, ladies. Curb those acerbic tongues! Or at least until the second date.

Colombian and British cultures, particularly when it comes to genders, are spectacularly different, no matter how relatable they seem. Use your brains, guys and girls! Trust your instincts – except when you’re wasted – and be sensible.

Try to avoid any spectacular gaffes or broken hearts, always use protection with your Latin lover, and remember to have a good time! If you’re young, free and single in a city like Bogotá, the world is your ostra.
