A cup of coffee with H.E. Luis Diego Monsalve – Ambassador of Colombia in China

H.E. Luis Diego Monsalve and Ioana Gomoi
Beijing, China, 2021

I visited the Colombian embassy in Beijing to sample a cup of aromatic Colombian coffee and have a chat with H.E. Luis Diego Monsalve, the country’s ambassador to China.

As well as diving deeper into Colombian culture, ambassador Monsalve shared some of his precious memories of living in China, and why he finds the experience so fascinating. Clearly bitten by the travel bug, the envoy has set a goal of traveling to every Chinese province at least once before he is re-stationed next year. How close is he to completing his tour of China? Well, I won’t give away any more spoilers. Let’s see the full interview to find out.
