You're not only marrying here you're marrying her whole extended family.

It's good thing you're a farmer you'll know all about milking-because that's what's about to happen to every nickel you own.

I met a guy who ran an Introduction Service in Bogotá-100% legitimate operation-he told me that at least 50% of the women on offer were looking to scam someone/somewhere/somehow.

yeah would agree with the other comments. Be very careful!

Well, many Colobians are quite pleasant ...but many others will screw you if given the chance.
In fact one of the most disgusting things that happend to me in many years of travel occured there. Usually even in the most desperate and poor countries, if you are a guest in their houses, they always respect you and keep you safe.

But this dont seem to apply in Colombia! In one place, Neiva I stayed with a family for 3 weeks.... thought they were great people , took the kids swimming and other things..and on my last day there the F***** stole all my cash!
