My First Real Home in Colombia

It is kind of awesome. I live with 2 brothers and their mom. They go to college here. I'm not sure what the mom does all day because they have a maid that comes to clean and cook lunch twice each week. 
All really nice people. Although I think one of the brothers is addicted to online gambling. One day as I was going in and out of the place at various times, I never saw him away from the computer or wearing something different than pajamas. 
It's an apartment in a big complex. There are doormen which is nice, a little extra security.


The area is awesome. Within blocks are supermarkets (from small/cheap to giant/expensive), all sorts of fast food places and other small restaurants, all the major east side busy roads (Caracas and Septima), shopping (clothes, artisans, home decor) for blocks. It's pretty central to say the least and takes me a 75 cent bus ride for 15 minutes to get to work. Pretty damn good when you live in a city of 8 million. 


I pay about $220 per month which is maybe half my wages (working 8 hours a week, hahaha). So its kind of ridiculous (the good kind)


I've spent a lot of time walking around a lot and always find cool new places: parks, restaurants, artisan stores, galleries, and bars everywhere.

Right now, I'm really happy with what I've got, and as Christmas gets closer, I'm looking forward to being home.
