Talking About Colombia Blog

Talking About Colombia – a Canadian gal with ties to Colombia (her parents were born there) writes about political/social issues in trying to understand her homeland away from home.

She covers issues such as childrens’ rights, indigenous, environment, FARC, economy and entertainment plus much more and holds degrees in comparative literature, international affairs, and creative writing from Brown, Columbia, and the Newschool, respectively. Meet Paula Delgado-Kling by visiting her blog.

The Wanderlust Chronicles: From Barranquilla to Bogotá: Impressions of Colombia Year Two – another college grad from the USA (what is it with these people… :) ) who took to the road and doesn’t plan on looking back anytime soon. So what to do when you love to write and travel? Start a blog about your journeys and even get a job in Colombia! Now that is impressive.

Want to work in Colombia too? Kate tells you how how in a post titled: “My Journey to Obtain a Colombian Work Visa” and reminds us what J.R.R. Tolkien once said: “Not all who wander are lost.” Here, here.

Medellin Living – travel and lifestyle blog covering all things Medellin, where most folks go who don’t end-up in the capital. Things like: “Rumba at La Tienda“, “Top 3 spots to catch your breath in Medellin” and “Medellin metro is most-visited attraction“. Even I didn’t know that! When we were there we went to the waterpark :)

Quality blog with high-quality posts… the one about Rumba included a map, phone number and website of La Tienda. Useful info for planning your night out on the town.

Mike’s Bogotá Blog – an American guy named Mike writes about politics, quality of life & transit issues and does a pretty good job of it. Latest post is “Al Gore in Bogotá : Do as I Say, Not as I Do!”

Transportation issues are covered well such as planned subways, freeways and the need for crazy motorcycle drivers (with many photos of crashed bikes and injured people) to stop being so crazy. Archive of posts go back to 2007 and contain over 180 posts. Worth a view if you are thinking of traveling to or living in Bogotá.

Cocala – An American Living in Colombia – food-oriented blog with photos, colorful descriptions and recipes (in English & Spanish) from a South American afficionado (and I thought I was the only one…) who has lived in Argentina, and now calls Colombia home.
