New members of the Colombia forum, introduce yourself here – 2017

Good Morning Marta,

We are settling nicely in Medellin.  After many glitches we finally closed on our apartment in Medellin.  We have found the people here very inviting and even my little schnoodle FiFi has made new friends .  It has been a wonderful experience and our visa's will soon be completed.  After spending more then 5 years in Panama this is a welcome change.  We will be here until May with a few trips scheduled out of the country but only for a few days.  I agree it's a wonderful place and it's a privledge to be able to call Medellin home.  Life is a gift to be treasured one breath at a time.  What better place to enjoy those moments. 

Where in Medellin did you settle?

Hi Cathy (and others in the forum)

Your post is from several months back, but thought I'd message you anyway. Originally from Belgium, I've been living in Cali for about a year now. Frequent job travel has kept me from really settling in. These past months, that finally changed, and I'm trying to find a routine again and meet people. Funny how in a city with so many souls, it is so much harder to connect. Some quick background notes: biologist by training, a bit-of-everything by interest, enjoy travel and nature, love working with kids, like dogs, coffee and fried plantain, and no criminal record :)  If you are up for some coffee one afternoon, happy to meet up.



Hi Everyone!

I very recently moved here, to Cali, from NYC.  And WOW what a difference!  I have been here about 4 times before, for a total of about a month and a half, and fell in love with the 'eternal summer' and how happy the people are in general.  I currently live in the north east section of Cali, close to Colegio Simon Bolivar.  My Spanish is improving... I can function... kinda.  I've been practicing as much as I can, 'poco y poco'.  But it's still a little frustrating when trying to understand the locals.  But again most people here in Cali are good people and patient.   I would love to make some expat friend in Cali and share experiences.  Honestly getting a little homesick so it'd be great to connect.  I love to dance, explore, run, just enjoy life.  Send me a message if you'd like to connect.  - Tanya
