Sawdust and Varnish

Stopped by a carpenter’s workshop today to ask about a table…. Love the smell of saw dust and varnish but especially the organized chaos of things getting trimmed and built. Is that weird?

Cultural Observations #001

A couple days back I went to my local bank to setup an account. Did some research online about what I needed to do and what to expect. I’ve mentioned one of two things on the video. Listen well and polite. It’s customary for private security guards to patrol private banks here in Colombia. Usually […]

Paperwork…

About two weeks ago, Anna and I had the opportunity to share the good news that we are fully funded! So what have we been up to since then? Paperwork… For most people, the experience of going to a foreign country is typically short-term for vacation or for work. You pack what you need for […]
