Getting Ready

I am reviewing Airbnb for places to live in Bogota and have also looked at the Spanish language schools. My initial assessment is that the city seems encouraging.

I also have been looking at places along the Columbian Pacific coast, and I found a small town with several inexpensive Airbnb’s surrounded by ocean and jungle. I’m still sitting on the fence about going there, but I’ll have to find out what the total cost will be before I make a decision. I do not know if I will fish while I’m there or go and scope it out.

I have my room booked in El Gato and I am looking for a place to hang my hat in Coyhaique and Cochran. I would really like to get further south this year and also explore the Rio Simpson.
