znkdtqxmfj1mo
oh nice! honestly as long as I can do a video chat on hangouts, then itโ€™s good enough
jvaqwdkgrupm1mo
yeah obviously this isnโ€™t as good as a coworking space but itโ€™s close enough
yuislzw1mo
ybdgqfwhzdkeu how did you arrive into salento? Fly to Cartagena?
ynjmrxgbtrcc1mo
Nah flew to Pereira
gdvyhamashul1mo
Cab to salento
iauuzae1mo
Ahhh. I have to go see a client in Pereira so I might check it out. Been wanting to go there but always been too far.
qkrqctmbngkw1mo
yeah itโ€™s a super cute town! iโ€™d def recommend
vgvlndyjomfe1mo
crap people had posted here before suggesting bogota neighborhoods! i donโ€™t think i saved it tho ๐Ÿ˜•
qfrinauvrxma1mo
mind suggesting places again folks?
mqwemkdepudh1mo
i remember somehow had mentioned chapinero but suggested a specific range of streets
xftfwncyltfh1mo
was it chapinero alto or chapinero central?
necnqmi1mo
Live dangerously. Flip a quarter. ๐Ÿคญ
havfpmjpedum1mo
hahaha
iantmgr1mo
Hola a todos! Just looking for any kind of recommendations for Cartagena. I'll be there for a week so any tip helps, thank you!
xqlvoqwtcmbjwm1mo
Cafe Folklore is nice to work from a couple of hours a day
eaynrgiejjjwgpxfhz25d
Hey ! Who's in Cartagena at the moment ? Been here for 3 weeks, will stay a few more months
drwrfkuwhpan24d
Heyoo! Who's in bogota? About to fly there from salento today!!!
wyriwkq22d
What's the correct way to report spam posts here?
dflmnjtywsrs20d
xsgprzxvexfcj just arrived in Cali, #colombia
wswisrfxmzhu20d
I'm heading to the coffee region in a few days. Does anyone know a beautiful place to stay where I can work comfortably too? I'm looking at Filandia, Salento, Pereira Armenia.
yooghsddamjp20d
YES!
ucuifbbkfqet20d
jonzawvmoqgwg just spent 2 weeks in salento
mkdwedomzisi20d
stayed at casa olier hotel where the wifi was mehh around 5 mbps
annobeeneqol20d
but in cafe jesus martin it was around 10 Mbps
slocfdtvfcdl20d
i think the town is honestly just adorable though and would highly recommend you visit
ydtneloqxguz20d
def check out finca momota too
wckalbihqhvo20d
and cocora valley
kzcumzynnuxg20d
I was looking at the Coffee Tree. And I was also looking at the Selina outside of Filandia.
lnhlukpdctsi20d
ah didnโ€™t realize there is a selina in the area
rtbtzevbrryq20d
iโ€™ve worked at other selinas before and the wifi is solid
ktsnqinchwkf20d
i just personally wouldnโ€™t live there
tetqdiodtfzm20d
It's new (end of last year) I think. I just came from 2 productive weeks at Selina in Medellin. The Filandia one has no coworking space.
ufugxmfcrglg20d
ahh sadness
ztgrxtolttik20d
I don't really need all that much. Just a comfortable chair. I don't even need quiet. I grew in NYC and the noise is comforting ๐Ÿ˜„
unssxxdvthca20d
hahaha i ended up managing to work just fine in salento
nhoqgnowgmwi20d
tho obviously my internet in bogota is way better
ogcluqaicowq20d
so yeah in salento - the combo of casa olier hotel (which had a few places to sit and work including in my room) and cafe jesus martin (plus a few other cafes of choice too) worked well
lfehplsrpyiw20d
Is Bogota where you are now? I just arrived in Cali. I have meetings all day Friday and Saturday and then off to Eje Cafetero.
zcypedmztyux20d
yup iโ€™m in bogota until the end of february
ezobmeruglsq20d
I had to change planes in Bogota today (ugh). I waved did you see me?
fjodxabnkpms20d
haha for sure
fqqazbjjyxvv20d
i waved back ๐Ÿ‘‹
yfruimhklutx20d
Ah, that was you? I couldn't tell.
nszdmbzollpb20d
lol yep well thereโ€™s a lot of beanie wearing folks out now
vrtkwsducqpt20d
Jaja
vzyxlhxcniko19d
does anyone have bogota coffeeshop to work from recommendations?
lgaghhfppeeu19d
gxvyxcsvzfjyaam looking at you
pxkdwkivrkkqrm19d
Bogota is cold. Donโ€™t look at me.
hrldyjxstfhf19d
lol
dyodcamaoxrf19d
but i went for a walk this am and it was lovely!
mqqhtnribqbalq19d
You are clearly suffering some sensory nerve damage from your freezing adventure earlier this month.
jbeezxqauzddxcvi19d
I've heard there is a lot of cloud cover ... but I do hope to make it there someday anyway
udsxlafigqgh19d
yeah so iโ€™ve found the general trend is sunny in morning/rainy in afternoon or evening
fxrervqoxbfv19d
so i just make sure i go out for a walk/run/hike in the am
wmgvvhlejlzu19d
also iโ€™m next to a mountain so thatโ€™s nice
kgmeyabjfyshej19d
Most of Colombia is next to a mountainโ€ฆ.
wryfdmgqgmpm19d
true haha
uxyghec19d
zdazgajtnksac check out Juan Valdez Orรญgenes or the Starbucks a block away. Theyโ€™re pretty much co-working spaces.
Starbucks generally has better chairs and plugs upstairs. None of them mind people staying for hours on end even if you just buy the cheapest thing in the menu.
hqmoqkn19d
As to the weather discussion, January a February are fairly warm and sunny in BOG especially in the AM
awufiibctmcu19d
Yup! I'm sweating now at the cate
hmnoqjwvclma19d
Cafe
aukccea19d
I was at Starbucks until 1PM and had to leave bc it was way to warm for my taste ๐Ÿ˜
jcbacvwbghcf19d
Meanwhile the house is freezing haha
gphhkfldrxtz19d
I'm at Les amis this cute bakery now
baqyuwgdpqgi19d
Lemme know if u wanna grab a coffee/meal and say hi at some point UQPSY8M27!
hmlrbrm19d
Sure! I might be around the Zona G after lunch. Iโ€™ll DM you
mqvrjdqxqsrp15d
Goodbye Cali. Off to Eje Cafetero.
ufssqzoglexv13d
Heading to Salento tomorrow. Anyone going to be around?
yyhhabswqfcn13d
oh exciting kepqkgmxzgwty
ihxgpcuzwznd13d
not in salento but i have a ton of recommendations!
hzvcwyhyfqdj13d
Been off the grid for a few days so I'm staying put to get some work done first. I'm getting settled in the hotel, wifi seems fine for now. Let me know if you have any ideas for the evenings. Also interested in taking some Spanish lessons.
gnpgaptdrgff13d
yup! lots of cafes i liked - brunch, cafe jesus martin, fotografia museum, benabe cafe
ajgyefrklgcf13d
also finca momota has a cute coffee farm tour
pviijezzgobn13d
I will check them out. Thanks.
dbypqzcbkbhc12d
Interesting idea. Thanks for the suggestion. Looks like you have to stay there to do the tour.
ogjhzof12d
Not necessarily. But staying there is very worth it
ryeuokzyzipi12d
I just sent them a message to see if it's possible. Looks really cool. I'd consider staying too but I'm OK with just a day trip for now.
nvtepcj12d
The day tour is about a couple of hours
ydowdfsthqrb12d
Nice. Then I will have the afternoon to work ๐Ÿ˜Š
vnhnbdwngygr12d
I can join even if I don't stay there. Now I have to figure out how to get there ๐Ÿ˜„
hlisamk12d
Ask in any hostel reception. Theyโ€™ll explain on the map. Itโ€™s about a 45 minute walk from the main square
inqtzterfqzw12d
Super
jibjqmmaesvx11d
Anyone thinking about going to Barranquilla for carnaval? I'm making last minute plans. Right now looking at just a couple of nights Fri - Sun (March 21-23).
rqxdsqovwnqu8d
Thanks lwbjwawvfmbbd for all your suggestions. All great hangouts. Sad to leave Salento. Already regretting it. (not really).
bolxtgicnyjt8d
awesome! glad you had a great time URLHC05C2!
xzmhudv8d
Pleased to know you enjoyed it.
Are you heading over to Barranquilla for the carnival?
rrphqxumgsaz7d
Not sure. I'm in Cartagena now. Spanish lessons in the morning working the rest of the day. I have the next 3-1/2 weeks on the Caribbean coast. Split between Cartagena and Santa Marta. Might sneek a weekend trip to Carnaval in between.
ekzftwi5d
Good stuff ๐Ÿค™ have fun!
wwddutgtsq4d
Hey tycmxcpg is it too late to be trying to get things booked for barranquilla and carnival?
hpxnxmk4d
Not at all. Most of the events are free or sell tickets at the entrance. Beware of scammers. Finding accommodation might be the real challenge
txufvuxlwp4d
Cheers UQPSY8M27. Gotta try and make the trip./
ojazbvhyiy1d
Hi all, I'm curious how you are getting work done in Colombia? Are you mostly staying out in larger cities with decent internet and then making shorter trip to smaller places on the weekends?
zatxciitwa1d
In other words, how is internet access in the country overall?
dojelcuprtwg22h
Can't speak for the whole country, but the Internet was bad or nonexistent everywhere I went outside Medellin, Santa Marta, and Cartagena (Jardin, Tayrona Park and environs, Bahia Solano). Heard mixed things about wifi in Salento. So yeah, I basically did exactly what you're describing
hyfeeukyjjeb22h
Larger cities are also better for social life
ztiihyzskcts21h
I had good internet in Salento. Got a decent amount of work done. I wouldn't call Santa Marta a big city. I arrived here yesterday and the internet is solid. I'm staying at a place with a coworking space.
rbuktivbazbc20h
fsxnzflwquz I worked in both salento, bogota, and suesca
nadhpscoutnp20h
Bogota is no problem
fgdgayiyzzof20h
The two smaller towns I used cafes or tethered
