Today a bomb exploded near my house, killing five and injuring 25. It was against the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) between the US and Colombia, which comes into effect today.
I’m not going to dwell too much on this, as I don’t feel it right to bring more negativity to the situation. It was a stark reminder though that Colombia is a rising star at the moment, but there is still a simmering internal tension, which bubbles to the surface by surprise.
For this reason, I want to shout good, positive things about Colombia so please read and enjoy my latest blog on La Xarcuteria.
