A Travellerspoint blog

Packing

Did my last shift until December. The Ice beat Calgary 5-2.

Colombia. Its interesting that almost every time i tell someone that we are going to Colombia the first question is "isn't it dangerous?" i suppose that is a valid question given the recent history of the country. However, from what i understand Colombia has taken huge strides in the last ten years to clean up that image and the citizens are proud and happy to show off their country. So that is my hope and expectation but like any emerging nation there is poverty and where poverty exists so does crime and one needs to be somewhat cautious. I'm actually more worried about the snakes and insects we may encounter on our jungle trek.

My next entry will be from Bogota

Until then keep your stick on the ice.
