…For getting in touch with me. I get a LOT of spam mail, with ‘people’ trying to sell me naughty things, so LOVE it when genuine readers get in touch with encouraging, helpful or similar stories.
There have been many, but over the weekend, I have selected two to highlight:

I happened to stumble upon your blog while searching for jobs in Bogota and I’m glad I did since now I know I’m not the only one really stressing about finding a job and I haven’t even arrived yet. I’m in a not so quite but similar situation as you, worked in education for 5 years here in the U.S. but woke up one day and realized I couldn’t handle the routine of working 8-5 in an office for the next 35 years of my life and among a lot of other stress at the time I just decided to start over and focus on my passion, social work. Anyway, sorry for the long post but if you’re interested in volunteering you could try http://www.volunteersouthamerica.net.
I’ll definitely be following your blog.

I like your lively style of writing – perhaps that is where you next ‘j.o.b’ is going to be… I am a retired writer/photojournalist living in Barichara and I write about my adventures in Colombia as a sort of ex-pat. I’d be a complete ex-pat if I could have a permanent visa, but am settling now for an annual one. Stop on over, or even come to Barichara sometime… and keep on writing!
Thank you both for your kind comments. I love reading them and make sure I get back to everyone.
