Re: **** Official Medellin Colombia Thread***

Well I just booked my ticket for Medellin! Arriving on November 2nd. Loose plans are to stay around 3 months (with weekend to week long trips exploring the country) then head to Ecuador/Peru for another three months. But we will see, my travel "plans" are never very stable.

Anyways, I will definitely be looking for a shared apartment in Medellin. Would love to live with some like minded people. I probably won't be grinding online much as that is not my focus anymore, but do like playing live from time to time. Especially in home games. As I stated earlier in this thread, I am moving down to grow a business project I am working on and want my dollar to go a bit further than it does here, plus I generally can't wait to get out of the US every year!

A bit about me:

I'm 30 years old

From Northern California and have lived all over the west coast and Idaho.

I travel every year for around 3-6 months

I have owned a few businesses in my twenties and got burnt out and became a raft guide. I now work on the Middle Fork of the Salmon in Idaho doing 6 day long class 4 wilderness trips (SUPER FUN).

Now I'm ready to get back into the business world and am working on a project I'm very excited about.

I'm way into outdoors and adventures!

I don't drink, do drugs, or smoke. But I definitely like to go out and have a good time eating, dancing, chasing women and whatever else. I'm very social and easy to get a long with.

I try to stay relatively healthy and eat right and work out.

Anyways, if your down there or heading down there and interested in a roommate please send me a message. Medellin awaits!

Thanks,
Scott

are you saying that walking around with a fitted new era cap makes you a robbery target?

It's way more subtil and way less.
They have the term "Prepago" what means that she sleeps with the guy and the guy helps out with electricity bills, medicine for the sick mother,...

Girls are damn materialistic here, but also loyal and friendly. However, most western girls would consider the average Colombian girl a prostitute.

I rarely see a real prostitute in clubs here.

To be fair, all of those things translate to "medicine for the sick mother" in Spanish.

I also read Antifragile in Medellin. Great book.

Have you eaten at Verdeo? It's a fantastic health food restaurant a few blocks southeast of Parque Lleras.
