In Medellin this weekend, meeting with Adriaan Alsema, the editor-in-chief of Colombia Reports, the largest English-language news website for Colombia. He’s published a couple of my articles in the past, so when I had a chance to meet him in person, I jumped at it.
He’s an interesting guy, a Dutch ex-pat who has been here in Medellin for the last three years – keeping the english speaking world up to date on all the news and happenings in Colombia. He’s a blunt, forthright, sophisticated journalist who doesn’t sugar-coat anything for anyone. (So, naturally, we got on famously.)
As much as I’m enjoying Medellin (hope to be back for book three), I will be glad to return to Bogota tomorrow and get back to work!
I love to travel all over the world. I really enjoy reading your blog very much. Thanks for sharing this post.

I’m a cardiac surgeon from Medellin. You should look at the surgical scenario in Medellin, since it has some of latin america’s busiest transplant programs.
Dr. Ramirez –
I would be thrilled to – I’m hoping to focus exclusively on Medellin for the third book.
I´m in real estate in Medellin, this industry is booming with North Americans, Europeans and Australians. More corporations like IBM, HP, J@J are setting shop in Medellin. Will this phenomena also be included in your next book. Saludos from Medellin.
Probably not – I think I’ll stick to what I know.. But it might be just the thing for you to write about. 🙂
