      Andrés Felipe Caicedo Sierra on his semester abroad: "One of the things I enjoy the most here in my semester abroad in Oslo is to introduce myself. First, that I am Colombian but study in the Netherlands. However, that this is not my first time living in Norway either. Second, that I study liberal arts, a curriculum somehow ‘sociology-oriented’, but that I only take anthropology courses here. Though, that I won’t be either a sociologist nor an anthropologist but a photographer. It really mess up with people’s heads, but it reminds from time to time how UCM-like I am"
