Last Friday I landed in Medellin, Colombia. After my Spain trip I figured why not an end of the year trip to Colombia. Since now I live in Florida, it is a simple easy trip to latin america. I went to Dominican Republic for a weekend 3 months ago, and also missed my flight to Panama a month after that. So latin america is fairly easy trip if I need to get a way for a weekend.
Now I am in Colombia until the New Year and I have some interesting things I will be doing while here, especially for the blog. Mid last week me and Rohial Rizvi created a blog video of Q&A to help with your questions about internet marketing - this will be another blog post. Still editing a massive 3.5 gig file.
So far this country is amazing, the culture aspect isn't what people think it is. I believe the country is recovering very well and reputation of the Escobar days. I don't feel any fear of being kidnapped or robbed. But I also travel smart. I am here for a month and all I brought is what I can fit in my carry on luggage. That is how I travel and the best way to travel.
Currently, I rented a penthouse with a couple entrepreneurs to do some work and also have fun while we are out here. Being in the city center gives us aspect of the city life. But I also like going to the ghetto, the hood, the bad parts of town. This is where I feel most of the culture is. Any modern day adjustments to a city is usually modernized and has a different mentality than when you are living the barrios.
Anyways.. pictures speak faster than text here are some pictures.
So far I have been here a week and have done a lot. My schedule is usually working during the day and after lunch is when I start doing tourist stuff. So this way I have disciplined myself to make sure do work and enjoy my little vacation away from FL. Traveling is the best way to enjoy life and experience what the world has to offer.
I also did a video of Q&A as I stated so I will be posting that soon. If you have any questions about internet marketing or performance marketing online, then ask away in the comments. I will be doing another video at least weekly and will have it edited and updated on the blog.
Talk soon everyone!
