I have made the reservations and book the hotel, I am going to Bogota and Medellin in July! I plan on focusing on the economics and culture instead of women, but as I can i will keep you posted. I am pretty excited since Colombia and Chile seem to be top contenders for the GTFO of America locations i would like to live in. But for now I will have to be content with merely visiting. Unlike Panama, this one is just for pleasure.
Cool. Keep us posted. I might be going to Colombia later this year, so I'd be interested in what it's like.
Yeah just avoid UK, Mexico, Chiang Mai as they will see an influx of disenfranchised U.S. political voters after 11-Nov-2016. Source: http://www.skyscanner.com/tips-and-insp ... 3March2016
It kinda sucks that Chiang Mai is on the list, but as for Mexico, I never had the desire to visit Cancun. Mexico City and Guadalajara are separate stories. I would not want to visit London if you paid me. But that is just me .
I have been talking with a slightly older lady (25) who is a school teacher, and I gotta tell ya, I have never had such an interesting conversation with a lady near my age (I am almost 22). We touched on peaceful parenting, economics, the environment, travel, values, cobs homes, and more! She mentioned that she has visited the US and an older gentleman (40 or so) tried to date her, but he was boring and absorbed in his real estate venture. Her problem was finding a man that liked to talk about smart things. I find that kind of interesting, because many times people say that women abroad are simple home bodies, when the opposite is the truth. They are traditional, and yet like the Proverbs 31 woman they are merchants, teachers, etc. and are productive members of society. It has been very interesting talking to her and I hope we can maybe go forward more, but distance is always an issue (although with some things I have messed with, I may not need to stay in the States, but that is still in the works).
Currently at DTW waiting for my flight. I am taking a guy friend with instead of my ex. On the topic I am already going to meet up with a school teacher who has her bachelors. We talk about philosopy, classical liberalism, and deep topics and have physical attraction so we will see how it goes. Keep yous posted.
Finally got settled in. At my apartment after some help from a girl I am hanging with. She has been very sweet and I hope to get to know her more. She is very shy, but that can be ok. We will see how that goes. As for my friend, he wants to go street diving for street meat, but not sure he wants to get mugged. Otherwise we are having a good time. And one pro tip never trust wifi at airports haha. Peace.
Good learn as much Spanish as you should out of respect for the local culture. If you go to P4P, please don't tip them. That's how inflation occurs in P4P. Ciao, papo.
I did not partake. I waited for my friend while he and a tranny did their thing. It was really inexpensive. For preventing plebs from ruining it, I will leave out the rate, but it is cheap. While I waited a tranny grabbed my junk a few times lol. On my case I have been seeing a girl who is inquisitive, sweet, and feminine. She is a little bit older, but she also has a teaching degree and she just fits. Otherwise I would probably would be banging perras. As far as Spanish I know enough to do a straight order, but I still suck. I tried my best, and it is doing better than Panama, but I really need to improve. Might have converted my friend to happier abroad. As far as my date, she enjoyed gifts I brought her ,tea and books, and we cuddled and kissed for a while.She started grinding, and I let her, but I dont want to rush things. I enjoy her company, andI am enjoying my stay in Bogota. Tomorrow I head out for Medellin. There are many beautiful women here, but many are conservative. I met my date on okcupid and so far so good. She likes philosophy and talking deep, although language sometimes it a bit hard. I will keep you posted. BTW my apartment cost less than 30, so things dont have to be expensive. Ciao!
I was discouraged there seeing many single moms there but if you found this quality girl, good for you, keep posting!
1)Too much of one thing defeats the purpose.
2)Everybody is full of it. What's your hypocrisy?
Well got back from Medellin. To me I got the Ann Arbor vibe near campus, overall a very tidy city. I met up with an American there and showed my friend and I around. You can live in the top neighborhoods for around 800 a month for rent, fully furnished, 4 bedroom apartment. It also seemed to have better p4p, although we did not partake since it was Sunday. Matter of fact a girl added me on facebook. Filed it under contacts in case I ever need it.
I have been back in Bogota since yesterday, have only 2 more dayss till I head back to Detroit. I am really going to miss my girlfriend down here, but she said she wanted to make it up here. So hopefully we can work it out somehow. I am waiting for a royalty to pay off, but manufacturing is just getting started, so we will see how that goes. Also working on my political career, so we will see how that goes too. My gf is interested in that and other intellectual stuff, so I think it is a good match.
The weather is pretty good. I dont like too hot or cold, so in that regard I like Bogota. Medellin seems like a tidy prosperous city, but I feel like emotionally I connect with Bogota more. I got more iois in Bogota than Medellin. I believe a conservative, white guy that is relatively young AND with decent Spanish could do well here. Bogota seems more conservative, thus marriage oriented, but that is andectodal. I am suprised at the vices that are legal. I was offered cocaine, which is of course not legal, but still a bit shocking. Weed is legal, p4p is tolerated, and there are a ton of casinos, which shocked me the most.
As far as business opportunities, I have seen a few, and will be exploring them. I believe there are some opportunities, but you will have to be creative with them.
