Iโ€™m in quilla until June 30
Yeah I'll do that as the other cash agencies I tried don't have anything available.

<@U77NG25N1> thanks for the suggestion, unfortunately they didn't have any cars available but definitely trying them next time.
we'll most probably spend October and November there, will def write you when we arrive
๐Ÿ›ฌ ndckjunnbfplzj just arrived in โ›ฐ Medellรญn, #colombia
that's easy to see blowing up the pic, but if this popped into my hand, i sure would have spent it like normal
jwnjqyxinns can tell easy with some light
xcbvctnnisik It's business most likely. Living locally we do everything through whatsapp, hiring service, booking doctors appointments etc..
Hiring service? Huh, interesting!
Hiring contractors for installation, hiring domestic help etc..
Ah, got it.
But the people here are probably not a service, they are desk workers. Thatโ€™s what surprised me
orqohhvqnpkfjvair I canโ€™t send you a DM yet (member since 5d only); but will follow up after that block is gone. ๐Ÿ‘
They could be doing customer support as well. I even book doctors appointments and get updates through whatsapp.
Has anyone been to this airbnb experiences street food cooking class before?
Second link, ignore the first. Just booked it.

Now googling, "How to find a lizzard in apartment"
random dinner conversations, is there kombucha in Colombia?
Is guarapo considered kombucha? hynotoad
โ€œit doesn't countโ€ โ€”from my google assistant at the dinner table
ahhh correct because although it's slightly fermented it doesn't have any tea ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™‚๏ธ
hmmm Preferably I can find a supplier if not I'll have to make my own man-shruggingsob
zooodldflxhton absolutely there is - go to bougie parts of cities, cafรฉs, and youโ€™re sure to find it.

This company started in Bali by a couple Colombians is now international, and I think I saw it in Bogotรก and Cali at some point:

If youโ€™re near the Coffee Region, I can help you find lots of SCOBY.
rixlprlfpbkniyjdi hhahahahhahahahahaโ€ฆ. are you talking about the barking geckos in the ceilings and walls, or silvertails/greentails/common lizards, or baby iguanas?! ๐Ÿคฃ
Speaking of what they have in colombia, the only thing I really miss here in Barranquilla is the lack of Indian food.
Tons of arab
Yeah, good luck with that. Best to just treat them as a new roommate. Bonus points because they eat mosquitoes and other bugs.
Indian, Thai, and good sushi.
I found some alright sushi here, uhg, just the need to put cream cheese in sushi is the worst thing ever.
And also you have to be careful because they load up the rice with tons of sugar & wheat flour to make it sweet and sticky. Best place is in Bogotรก (world class place there).
I do have a nest cam with night vision, thinking of setting it up to see where it is going, though I am not sure how I will capture it if I find it. I saw it exactly once before and only know it is there when it barks or I find gecko poop
anyone know anything about the digital nomad visa?
Kombuchas DAR is absolutely delicious and sold all over Bogotรก
why itโ€™s covered with fence?
It's a net not a fence, the previous owner had children, and we have one too.
Election day!
Colombia has a DN visa?
I guess it would also stop birds.
They've been talking about creating one but I have no.idea what the situation is for it atm
lots of traffic and crowds! better stay home and do some work ๐Ÿ˜‚

```The National Government under the leadership of the Foreign Ministry shall issue a special permit for the entry, stay and work of so-called "digital nomads" in the country, which includes people engaged in remote and/or independent work, teleworking, telecommuting and/or remote work, with the purpose of promoting the country as a center of remote work in the framework of the fourth revolution.

-- Article 16 of Law 2069```

Itโ€™s on the way, the new president is likely to support it (Liberal and very supportive to remote work and digital work force) so I think we can expect it to become a reality within the next year
fexcqvkyggesvypnl So I did as you said and yeah wise didn't care, they basically did all the paperwork and left the payment by the end, when trying the card they got the message saying savings or checking and while they were hesitant I just told them it was credit :joy:

Played the "european banks are like that" card and that workedgrimacing
it's basically just their policy, as yeah they want to be sure the can charge you even if you don't have money in there, I guess some CC will let them go over the limit and just charge an overdraft fee, not sure, haven't had a CC in a long time
lol, ya some do, most just report NSF
That's a strange policy
That's why most businesses that care charge a refundable deposit up front
Yeah, I miss the $100 deposit they charge me in Canary Islands for car rentals, quick and easy
Some cash ones here are also nice, might give them a go next time I need
Lots of my friends are worried with who won
Ya, so is my family. I have a lot of thoughts on this but won't talk politics on the channel.
Do you thin we would be expected to pay taxes?
Probably if you stay a yea
๐Ÿ‘Ž lol
I imagine it's less than if you stay in America though
Everything is totally fine here in Barranquilla. Was a peaceful transfer of power.
So far, so good. People are mostly hopeful, or at least putting on a good face until things shake out in the next few months. The private sector for the most part is operating under โ€œWait & see + hope for the best, plan for the worst.โ€
I'm in Bogota and everything is fine
Medellin is business as usual
My Colombian family outside of Colombia was telling us to buy food and hunker down, not even joking and nothing happened.
We bought extra food and water just in case
We will eventually eat and drink it. We are a big household
I also heard that rumour and bought extra water and basics ๐Ÿ˜‚ But I confirm that everything is good in Bogotร , besides terrible cold and rainy weather ๐Ÿ˜ž
๐Ÿ›ฌ nrpzjyft just arrived in โ›ฐ Medellรญn, #colombia
oxfevkhhxxnld The bit about the water in Bogotรก is especially great! Agree - itโ€™s the most delicious.
Anyone up for a couple of drinks on Calle 70, Laureles, tonight?
falzyuptamjdia I would be down for next week when Iโ€™m in town.
Good stuff! You staying in Laureles?
Going to be stayingโ€ฆ
Nearish to calle 70 ๐Ÿ˜… . Hopefully itโ€™s not too loud at night. It was recommended to me by a friend I met in Cartagena.
I can vouch for it being really, really loud at night. Itโ€™s been especially loud this week because of the cup final up the road and celebrations.
Well, I got ear plugs ๐Ÿ˜†
joyjoyjoy wise move.

Debating if I want to try Tinder again in Medellรญn... Anyone have any experience with it? Is it as much of a dumpster fire as it is in the states?
Not great for girls tbh, okay to meet men ๐Ÿ™‚

I can confirm itโ€™s fine if you are into men.
I am not, but good to know for my friends.
Any cyclists or bike enthusiasts in Medellin that would like to meet for a bike ride?
Anyone have a recommendation for an apartment in Medellin (Laureles neighborhood)?

Looking to connect directly with an apartment agency () rather than via Airbnb.
I and a friend had a better time on Bumble. Tinder is still bad, but I did a lot less bad than in the US. You're probably best off finding ways to meet people through social mixers and interest groups. Language exchange nights, dancing, public events.
Post some messages on facebook groups.
You will get spammed but you should be able to find something.
๐Ÿ‘‹ I'm down if you can point me to a place to rent one.
Agreed, Bumble and Hinge are much better. The scammers haven't seem to caught up with it yet, so seemed much safer. But as always, have at least the first date outside and don't invite directly to your flat..
I gotta revisit Hinge. I wasnโ€™t seeing much activity there.
Don't get me wrong, it's not super active. But since there's tons of North American tourists, you'll get a good match here and there.
Laureles barber recommendations?
Also interested in an answer to this.
