Facebook Groups for Ex-Pats Living in Medellín

Prior to moving to Colombia I spent many hours reading through various online Facebook groups to get a better understanding of what sort of issues people had trouble coping with, a sense of the various communities (locals and ex-pats) perspective on issues, prices of goods and services, places and situations to be wary of, etc. Below are the links to the groups that have been the most useful in orienting myself to life in Medellín

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

Yesterday I entered a competition held by Verso Books to differentiate between quotes by G. W. F. Hegel and L. Ron Hubbard. The prize was a copy of my former professor Slavoj Žižek’s new book Absolute Recoil: Towards A New Foundation Of Dialectical Materialism. I am quite happy to say that not only did I get a 10/10 on the quiz but I was also chosen to win and thus will be getting the book for free. Needless to say, I’m very excited to read this!
