Video: My Time in Colombia So Far

The other day as I was perusing my laptop for something to occupy my idle gringo mind, I stumbled across Windows Live Movie Maker. After playing around with the program for a bit, I got the novel idea of creating a video about my time in Colombia thus far.

I figured you guys could use a break from my perspicacious prose, anyway.

So, grab a bowl of popcorn, sit back and enjoy what could quite possibly be the greatest display of cinematic excellence you’ve ever witnessed.

Oh, and one more thing.

Tomorrow I’ll be heading to Manizales for Semana Santa, so there won’t be any updates for at least another week.
I know, I know.

Look on the bright side—now you will have plenty of time to catch up on all of my posts! When you’re done with the video, take a peek in the Gringo Archives (right sidebar) and dig in.


  1. Mike,
    I followed the link to your blog from your interview on Colombian Observationist. This is a great blog and your video was the perfect intro to what you have been up to in Bogota. I am also an American teaching in Colombia, in the city of Cali, although our experiences are probably somewhat different because my school is an international school with mostly wealthy students. I love what you are doing and that is something I definitely thought about when considering teaching abroad. If you ever make it to Cali in your adventures, let's meet up!
    Until then, happy teaching and Colombian living :)


  2. Great video!!! LOve Colombia and missing everything... Totally jealous... Wish you the best luck!!!!

  3. Thanks guys!

    Kristin, I checked out your blog and it's very interesting. You now have a new loyal follower haha. I will definitely let you know if I ever head to Cali and the same offer goes to you if you happen to be in Bogota!
