Softly close your car door. A lot of the drivers get really upset if you close their car door even with medium-level power.
Upon checkout at grocery stores, the clerk double knots your grocery bags which only serves the purpose of making them harder to carry lol
My Uber was stopped immediately at the airport by police, I was asked to step out of the vehicle so they could question me “for my security” which wasted 20 minutes. Then, I was forced to take a taxi for 20K more. A really terrible first hour to my arrival in Colombia. Luckily, Uber functions fine in the city.
The best looking women in the world live here and in high quantities. They want to look good whether it’s with the gym or the surgeon :D
The best bodies in the world go to Colombian women. Again, the women take the gym seriously here. I rank it #1 as far as how serious women take their physical health. They don't go to the gym once every 2 weeks and call themselves gym go-ers, they go consistently and it shows.
It’s like you’re in a forrest just walking in the streets with so much greenery and tall trees (downside = needs a lot of rain)
Before arrival, my friend’s computer got stolen at a Starbuck’s. Upon arrival, my Spanish school had been robbed the week prior and one of the Spanish students were robbed in a separate incident.
Big on dentistry! Braces, teeth whitening, the perfect smile, etc. I’ve been given a dentist business card by my Uber driver and met many dentists while being here.
It’s illegal to sell alcohol from 6pm the day before an election until the day after the election. Talk about treating your people like babies!
