I want to try and show a bit more of Colombia, and it isn’t always ideal to just publish photos, I would do, as many do, and take video using a drone, but, I have had at least four, and either crashed them, or watched them disappear into the sunset! I follow Casey LaDelle onContinue reading “Photo or Video?”

Tuesday was a day of appointments, firstly I had an Orthopaedic review with the Specialist, I had always had respect for, he had been looking at the possibility of surgery for my right knee, however it appears that the Government changes here, have begun filtering down before they have even been officially introduced. The DoctorContinue reading “All Change”
A mixed Bag!
It has been a week of small instances, some annoying some uplifting, but nothing of significance. It started with the Mayordomo, stopping me on my morning walk, to say that the timber was ready for collection, it had been delayed due to a few days non stop rain, which wasn’t a problem, as I wasContinue reading “A mixed Bag!”
Security, What Security?
I haven’t been able to do any work on the trailer lighting, it has been raining every day, and not just drizzle either, fortunately there is no urgent requirement to use it, so I am happy to leave the trailer alone for the time being. Tito’s new furry bed arrived early in the week, soContinue reading “Security, What Security?”
Anymore for Anymore?
Saturday, I spent nearly seven hours under the car, I decided to start the process of rewiring for my trailer lights, and because I have always installed a European 7 pin system here, and had made the decision to change to the US 4 pin system, it meant some work, firstly to the car. IContinue reading “Anymore for Anymore?”

Our concern has moved on, now it is Nala, the other day Marcela noticed some growths on Nala’s lowerContinue reading “Happy Birthday Pepe!”
You Live and Learn
I am a member of a couple of Expat Forums in Colombia, to be honest I don’t participate much, as most of the content is from U.S. citizens, with whom either I don’t agree, because the advice given is contrary to local laws, or for cultural reasons, and I rather not start something that endsContinue reading “You Live and Learn”
I have found myself to be deeply wanting, I have been updating the Blog, and neglecting my other pages, I also found that unwanted insertions have been made on the Site, in the form of punctuation, where ever I had ‘apostrophes’, the system had also inserted a ‘slash’ beforehand and after, there were also otherContinue reading “Apologies”
There has definitely been a change in the weather, not a day has passed without rain, it looks as if summer lasted just over two weeks, it’s an absolute bummer, I love some heat. I think my first few years here spoiled me, but it’s still better weather than back in the UK, I’ll justContinue reading “Winter…Already?”
To be honest, I’m not sure how to describe the Seasons here in Colombia,. when I arrived and for decades before, there were four seasons, Dry, Wet, Dry, Wet, they were predictable, and each lasted about three months, so in effect we had two summers and two winters, but that has changed over the lastContinue reading “Summer?”
