Armenia, Colombia – City Guide for Nomads and Expats

Armenia, Colombia. Part of Colombia’s coffee triangle (along with Manizales and Pereira). Known for, well…coffee, and not much else. I’ll say right off the bat that this is my least favourite out of the three aforementioned coffee cities. If you’re in the region and are pressed for time, do Manizales and Pereira. Armenia will be much of the same.

Fortaleza, Brazil – City Guide for Nomads and Expats

A huge city in the state of Ceara. Along with Recife and Salvador, Fortaleza is one of the major economic hubs of northeastern Brazil. Although it is a vibrant, modern and historically rich city, outside of Brazil, Fortaleza has the unfortunate reputation of being a sex-tourism destination.

Lima, Peru: First Impressions, A Few Doubts

As those of you that read my last post will know, I’m now in Lima.

Well, I’ve been here almost two weeks now and to be honest I’m having a few doubts as to whether or not I made the right choice.

“First Impressions” isn’t quite an accurate title – this is actually my third time visiting Lima – but the other two stints I did here were short, and I was mostly focused on eating ceviche, getting smashed on pisco and trying to get pussy (noble pursuits, I know). I stuck exclusively to two neighbourhoods, Barranco and Miraflores, and didn’t even really take the time to do currency conversions to determine what anything costs. In short, I really just skimmed the surface.

But now that I’ve got a bit of a feel for the place, I’m beginning to wonder if I really want to commit to several months here. Perhaps my two previous times here on ‘vacation mode’ have given me an inflated impression of how good Lima is.

Here’s why.

The 12 Sexiest Latin American Weather Girls

Gentlemen!

After a bit of a hiatus, I’m back to writing. Looking forward to chatting with ya’ll again. 

The reason for my absence is that I’ve been in Canada. I was contracted to do a bit of work here and I’ve been spending most of my time on that, hanging with family and tying up some loose ends here in my home country.

But, I’m happy to announce that next week I’ll be off once again to Latin America! Where exactly? You’ll have to stay tuned to find out.

What I can tell you is that you can expect much more content from My Latin Life in 2017.

I thought it’d be good to kick things off again with a post that’s easy on the eyes – something that even the illiterates among us can enjoy.

Here are the 12 Sexiest Latin American Weather Girls:

Caracas, Venezuela – City Guide for Nomads and Expats

The Big C, capital of Venezuela. Caracas has the dubious distinction of being the world’s most dangerous city outside of a designated war zone. Mansions in the east, slums in the west. Some cities can be trifled with. Caracas is not one of these cities.
