This blog was born originally because of the multiple requests from friends and family to see ‘pictures’ of Colombia. It was meant to be a site to document all the peculiarities and cultural shock of my first days in this exotic and obscure country.

The top objective of this blog is definitely to fulfill all the insatiable curiosities you may have about Colombia!

Let’s see how long this will last. The day when you stop seeing new posts may be the day from which I have acclimatized and ‘naturalised’!

    Espero entiendas lo siguiente y luego elimines el siguiente comentario de tu blog: Haces comentarios despectivo y groseros sobre el país, como por ejemplo los nombres de las ciudades o zonas (Claramente de origen indígena y/o español), creo que deberías leer Historia antes de hacer comentarios ridículos e irrespetar un país y su cultura -Y esto aplica para los visitantes de cualquier lugar del mundo- (Y para tu sorpresa no soy Colombiano). Y gracias por aclarar a tus amigos que Colombia no es un país africano en desgracia, y posiblemente en el mundo (planeta tierra) crean de forma generalizada en que HK/China comen perros y fetos humanos fermentados diariamente y son sumamente sucios y maleducados.

    1. Hi there – I am sorry to hear that you think what I wrote was rude. I apologise if you were offended. In fact you’re not the first one who has disapproved what I write.
      You’re right to express yourself. It’s true that some Chinese have a problem with food selection that risks violating human and animal rights, and what I write about Colombia is by no means saying that Colombia is wrong and the rest of the world is right.
      Thank you for your time in commenting on my blog, keep reading!

    Hi, Jessica
    I don’t know if you remember me. I’m one of your cousins who moved to the US years ago. I was having dinner with your parents last night and they told me about you and this website. Good to hear that you and your husband are doing well down in Colombia. Keep in touch.
    BTW, your website is very informative and I know more of Colombia now other than coffee and Futbol. ^.^

  5. Hi – I hope you don’t mind but I’ve nominated you for a Liebster Award here:

  6. Hola, just found this website. If you are still active with it, I’m looking for advice on where any Chinese New Year celebrations might be held in Bogota this year. Thank you.

  7. Love your blog and the way you write! Keep up the good work!

    1. I’m happy you enjoy it! Keep reading! 😀
