Wework in Barranquilla

take a night time ride along El Oriente which is basically a ride along the mountiantops so that you can look down into the city of Medellin and pull over roadside for wood grilled meat and hot chocolate?

will answer you will do so from the perspective of Colombians living in colombia who may not have access to higher salaries that you have access to. The suburbs around capital cities like Medellin and Bogota have awesome living with good rental prices and easy access to the cities. The private schools like CNG, Anglo, Gimnasio Moderno are some of the best in the world and will enable higher education opportunities both within Colombia and at the international level. Some downsides are the initial paperwork to get access to bank credits, owning a car is a must and a pretty high added cost due to taxes and gas prices, some of the bad areas you may stumble upon by accident have high crime indexes, but you really would have no reason to be there in the first plac
