Vibrant cities with soaring skyscrapers, elegant port towns cut by cobbled alleys and bougainvillea-shrouded balconies, spectacular national parks from tropical to heavenly-high-alpine, cruise boats, party buses, late-night salsa dancing and glorious shopping. This is Colombia we're talking about! On the surface, Colombia is a seemingly untroubled country. Media reports, however, still speak of coca fields, violent crime and kidnappings. Beyond the headlines is a thriving society with a rising middle class, some of the best health care and universities in South America, and improved security.

Mi viaje por Colombia fue una aventura de esas que parece n sacadas de una cámara indiscreta. Me pasó de todo. Zancudos, pulgas, ladrones/asalto, rayos X, inyección, tarjetas bancarias que no funcionaban, "beca" en Panamá... Read more >

Diclaimer: I've realized that the website I'm using for this blog stinks when it comes to uploading pics so I'm going to likely use Insta (srkoehler13) and Snapchat (skoehler1316) solely. Now, without further ado... Within the first few hours of ... Read more >
