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

Hey guys, rooms available in a nice place in Poblado my buddy just rented for a year. Disclaimer: I went to middle school with this guy, we were best friends wayyyy back and we've kept in touch off and on, he's in Medellin now and he fell in love with the city and is a real estate guy - so this is his first venture into medellin real estate, renting something for a year before buying. I'm not getting anything out of this but I'm sure he'd let me stay for free or something sometime in the future. He's not a poker player, just looking for people to fill the place as he'll only be living there half the time. He's asking 1.5 million per month per room, his description:

21 st floor commanding views of medillin. Situated in the heart of poblado. Each room is fully furnished, with on suite bathrooms and walk in closets. Utilities split between roommates. Strong internet connection. 3 month minimum.






















Both rooms available are the same...location is one of the best I've seen if you're staying in Poblado, I think a biiit closer to lleras than Henri, Luke, and Morton's place.

Carrera 38 and Calle 11. Parque lleras is Carrera 38 and calle 9...so very close to the action if you want to stay in Poblado, which imo is one of the worst things about Poblado is 'most' places are so damn far from everything and you need to order a taxi if you want to grab a cup of coffee.

Feel free to contact him at venerinvestments@gmail.com
513-551-9030 is his US number. Or drop me a line with any general questions.

He owns a property management property in the states, so is well versed in taking care of tenants and making sure everything runs smoothly

had interesting wcoop so far a couple close sunday runs. also went out met a beautiful woman who i just stopped in front of the mall when i was going home. its all about confidence my friends. i have some approach anxiety, but i fought threw it. pimp mode style. made her laugh chatted for about 5 minutes. then took her out to dinner and movies the two days after.



i had to use 28 years of being smooth to keep this date at breakeven. she didnt have much conversational skills. if i didnt lead the conversation there would be awkardness and lots of moments of silence. i made her laugh a lot which is the best way to build comfort and rapport with a women.
overall very interesting night out.



anyone got questions about women. ask ya boy. or bryan (boliver) he a smooth beast also.

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

I was thinking about moving to Columbia. I am older (50~) with a 1300 pension so I can get a retirement visa. Was thinking about one of the smaller cities like Manizales and was wondering what the cost of living would be there.

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

Oh one thing I wanted to mention: don't let your guard down just because you're in Poblado. A friend of mine was recently robbed walking from Lleras to Rio Sur (a fairly rich stretch of street is known as Milla de Oro) around 1-2am on a Thursday night. He was with his buddy too. They noticed two guys crossing the street and felt a little suspicious about it. The guys ended up catching up to them, first appearing all friendly, then telling them to hand over all of their ****. One of them claimed to have a weapon. They just handed over everything (cell phones, wallet, etc) and that was that. If you're between a taxi ride or walking late at night I'd say lean towards that taxi ride.

HAAAAAAA, the dude that literally RUNS after girls and jumps in front of them to say hi to every fine piece of ass he sees the first night I meet him....sober. lol, keep fightin the good fight man, whatever anxiety you have its all internal - I think I relate alot as I feel like a really shy kid but most people think im super out-going. That's just why I try and get white girl wasted every time we go out to loosen up!

Honestly that girl seems horrible if she's not putting up an equal effort in establishing a relationship...but i think ur a bit more find em, **** em, and flee is a bit more of the lord's style, gettin them trophy 9s and 10s

I'm not a beast in any means with girls, I'm just really nice and whatnot with ones I like, basically never pressure a girl into anything, and play a nice guy roll which is very different I think than the average macho local guy or sex crazed tourist that's here for a week and wants to hit and quit...and also being willing to put my penis in 94% of the females under 30 years old living in Medellin helps a bit. Whatever, zero standards and pretty eyes gets me by just fine.

yea, prob the absolute hands down most common place to get robbed is in Poblado. I still do like an idiot, but seriously don't walk around at night through anywhere dark or unpopulated...it doesn't matter if its a nice part of town, that actually works huuugely against you since all the thiefs go there to rob tourists since they all have more money on em than the average local in the hood. Combine that with dark spots all over poblado due to how foresty it is and how many little parks, creeks, nature walk type of spots and its just prime time for thiefs. I know 20+ people that have been robbed in Poblado, and a couple on la 70, and literally can't think of anyone else that has been robbed in normal parts of town...and its because that's where people go that have money - Poblado. Please note I have never heard of a violent incident ever in medellin involving a mugging, although alot of guns and knives - give up ur **** and you have nothing to worry about.

And no das papaya, which we all do in one way or another. I dress like a grimey skate rat most of the time, but just having a closed new era hat instead of a snapback can be considered dando papaya. Buying a water bottle instead of a bag of water can be considered the same when I'm with local friends, but I've stopped giving a crap as people just don't seem to mess with me when I'm rockin my skate rat style - had a bum give me money the other day.

It's been covered, but to dar papaya can range from pulling out your cell phone to text somebody, speaking english, dressing like a gringo, wearing jewelry, flashing money in any way that shows you might have more than $10 in your pocket, not haggling on prices, leaving a bag unattended, etc etc etc. Basically I understand it to not be a low-hanging fruit, ripe for the pickin

Si das papaya....que penaaaaaaa





Also I'll be up there next weekend, down for a 2p2 dinner. Keep us posted whoever wants to organize that, I call not it. Could also probably get in touch with pokerstars and have them pay for the whole thing for supernovas and above, they've done it before for us in mexico (like 11 course dinner at fancy restaurant for 20 of us) and many times in canada as well.

What I've been up to lately besides the pokers:


6 natural hot spring fed pools, with alot of waterfalls and other pretty stuff all around


Re-learning how to skateboard


Chupitos!!

Thanks for your "in" @Wooly and @lordjosejose @boliver

@lordjosejose
Would be cool if you could shoot the guys a message when we have time/place rdy.

Let's do a 2+2 dinner.

Time:
I suggest next tuesday, wednesday or thursday. 8:30PM.

Restaurant suggestions:
Al Rojo

No clue, how many people will come. So please don't suggest a restaurant where we have to reserve every single seat.

wow super sick yea man. i advise if anyone is going out at night. to be with a friend that is not drunk and has good situational awareness. the scumbag thieves here target people that seem drunk. or that looks incapable of defending himself. thank good im 9 ft tall so im not a good target for thieves. but yea man very unfortunate.

1. yea i do beast with women. but i think everyone still has some type of approach anxiety, but yea i just bum rush through it. pimp mode style.

2. yea as i said 100 times , i call it the hotgirl syndrome. 95 pct of hot women never had to learn how to progress in a social interaction (in terms of mating) . she never had to be charming,funny, interesting to build intrigue , because the intrigue she offers is 99 pct physical in the beginning stages of dating.she has an amazing body and pretty face. she can get any guy she wants just cuz she is a 10/10. i never seen a women be charming. anyone else please gimme some details. its just super rare. i had to use all my charm and boliver knows me. im very genuine and super smooth, i had to use all my natural abilities and everything just to be above slightly breakeven date.

3. pimpasarus lol. i dont have a style. i wouldnt mind settling down wifing a woman up if i meet the right one.

4. yo u can beast with women. ana liked u a lot she said you have a great personality. !! and she liked ur dance moves.

2. guatape is a peaceful mountaneous area its beautiful. its about a 3 hour drive. around medellin all over. is rural farm land with lakes, they have places called fincas. its basically a ranch. you can rent a finca for the weekend. most of them have pools and you can enjoy the forest, pools lakes and whatnot. its pretty cheap if you have all the friends to chip in. they are some fincas that are like 45 min drive from the city. also there is a resort area ( http://www.skicolombia.com/ski-colombia.php ) where you can jetski . wakeboard , bike . rock climb. enjoy the scenary. if we can get enough people i would be down to go and hang out for the weekeed.
Thanks a lot for the great info. I'm still toying back in forth between Medellin and going back to Chiang Mai.

Hey guys, awesome thread. I've been to Medellin a couple of times in the past and I really liked it, it has the highest % of hot women per capita of any city I've been to I'm looking to move somewhere to grind and Medellin is definitely on top of my list. What are the living expenses like over there??
