Whew. I'm not going exclusively for pussy. I am going for a bachelor party. I'm not going to try and derail an entire bachelor party to Cartagena, which would be fun, just to go to Cali/Bogota/Medillin and game. I'm sorry, but I'd rather have fun and just come back to Colombia by myself in the medium term.

Although, given the data I'm seeing on this sub-forum, and my own context (6'3 black male, not stereotypical), it seems Mexico would be a better bet for me when it comes to traveling for Spanish pussy.

Yes perhaps, I know a couple of black RVF dudes who do well in Mexico but Colombia has a lot of potential too, my buddy from Canada who is black came down to visit me in Cartagena and Medellin last year and he did well, he really liked it. Cartagena is like the Cancun of Colombia; there's tons of tourists, prices are relatively high, lots of hookers, etc but if you get off the beaten path a bit, you can meet some really nice chicas.

God damned them all, I was told we'd cruise the seas for American gold, we'd fire no guns-shed no tears, now I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier, the last of Barrett's privateers!

Al parecer, por sobredosis de escopolamina falleció un hombre en Laureles

Información preliminar indica que la víctima se encontraba departiendo en un establecimiento comercial, en compañía de dos amigos, cuando conocieron a unas mujeres con las que comenzaron a departir.

Al parecer, los hombres compartieron un par de horas con estas mujeres y no recuerdan mucho, hasta que despertaron en la vivienda y vieron a su amigo sin signos vitales.

A los otros dos hombres les habrían suministrado la misma droga y les habrían hurtado todas sus pertenencias, por lo que debieron ser trasladados a un centro médico para ser atendidos.

Las autoridades realizaron la inspección técnica del hombre que falleció y se espera a que Medicina Legal confirme las causas de su muerte.

RE: The Colombia Master Thread
Cheers guys,

Im thinkig about doing a Spanish course for up to B1 or even B2 level, I have A1 now, at the end of this year and I would probably bring around three months of time. Do not feel comfortable yet dating in Spanish, but I can communicate a bit.

Ive always felt attracted by Colombia, in general, and would love to spend some time there.

My game is moderate, even though Im bad at night game and barely did any day game in the last months/years, so Ill be certainly down for online game.

Respecting easyness of girls, costs of living and safety, which place would you recommend for a three-month stay?

Thanks in advance!

For those who want to practice their spanish here's an article in the main Medellin newspaper about the safety in parque lleras and the methods 'paisa' prostitutes use to steal and poison tourists. Give it a read.

That's a great article and states that one of the main ways gangs rob tourists is by girls meeting guys on Tinder, proving once again that BattumMania doesn't know what the fuck he's talking about.

I was once drugged and robbed and believe me, it was a really shitty experience. It wasn't in Colombia but I guess it was a similar method to what do they over there.
I can explain the whole event if you guys wanna read about it.

RE: The Colombia Master Thread
Has anyone done a temporary import into Colombia (or other countries) successfully?

This is where you're already in the country and have something shipped to you, pay the import tax temporarily as a deposit, then get the tax back when you leave a couple weeks later with the item you received.

I need to get some new kitesurfing gear and would like to ship it to Colombia to use it down here, but not if I have to pay import taxes.

Given my experience with Colombian bureaucracy, I'm not optimistic this can be done successfully, even if the import rules permit it.

RE: The Colombia Master Thread
Alright, here it goes:

HOW I GOT DRUGGED AND ROBBED

I’m going to explain an incident in which I got drugged and robbed, I don’t mean to instill fear with this, I just want others to know what happened to me and to learn from what I went through, I hope it helps others and I’d be more than happy if this account helps people and it avoids further incidents.

I’m going to try to be as accurate as possible but there are things that I just can’t remember, it’s been more than three years now and there’re parts of that night that I just never really knew what happened. One thing I can say for sure: this event is one of the worst things that’s ever happened to me.

It was November 2015 and I had just moved to Saint Petersburg, Russia, from another Russian city in which I had lived for more than two years. I was fairly new in Saint Petersburg (Piter) when this happened but not in Russia. If I remember correctly it was my second or third week in Piter.

It was a Saturday night and me and my roommate had a very large dinner at home, he cooked lots of pasta and I ate a lot (he’s a very good cook), after eating another friend came home and we started pre-drinking before heading out. We had a bottle of whisky between the three of us. After that we took a taxi and went to a bar, I can’t remember the name of the bar but I can ask my friend who might remember.

Once I got into the bar everything seemed fine, we ordered a few drinks at the bar and we were just having fun. I then realized that next to me there was a cute girl with red hair and we started talking, note that at his stage I was pretty tipsy but not hammered. We went outside to have a smoke and we were joined by a female friend of hers. Red hair girl said she was from the city in Russia I had lived more than 2 years before moving to Piter (coincidence?), at this point my memory starts to fade and I remember less. I tried to kiss her but she said it was too early for that and she’d come to my place later in the night.
Next thing I remember we were the three of us in a taxi and then we were in another bar, I think in Dumskaya street, for those of you familiar with Piter.
At this point I’d say I was aware I was feeling weird but nothing really seemed out of the ordinary. I bought a few rounds of shots using my debit card (huge mistake) and right after that I remember very little. I had an image in my mind of me being at an ATM and then being in a taxi with the two chicks. I was at the back of the taxi and this I remember very well, I was woken up by one of the girls and she then said this to me: “Get out of the taxi” using my own name, to which I complied.

I got out of the taxi and then I was feeling really weird, I can’t compare how I felt then with anything else. I’ve taken recreational drugs before but I wasn’t feeling high when I got out of that taxi. I was more like feeling lost, it took me a while to realize I was on my own street and I was in the middle of the road at night. There was no one around me. Only then I had a feeling that something was odd, I kind of felt fear and panic at the same time. I looked at my wrist and my watch wasn’t there (it was an automatic Tag Heuer), I reached to my right pants pocket to get my phone and it wasn’t there (standard Samsung smart phone), I opened my wallet and my bank card wasn’t there, neither I had any cash. Then it hit me and it hit me really hard: I had just been robbed.


I ran to my apartment and woke up my roommate, who was at the first bar with me but went home earlier, I called the bank to cancel my card and by the taxi I got an English operator on the line all she could do was tell my all my money was gone, I had approximately 100,000 Rubles in my account, which equaled to around 1,200 USD. All gone.

The day after, still feeling not well, I went to a police station and filed a report, I needed to get an official translator for that, which wasn’t cheap. The officer that was there mentioned that there had been many similar incidents in the city. The police said they’d investigate but I didn’t really have much hope.

I went to my own bank, still with the official translator, and explained what happened. The translator put everything in writing and I signed some paperwork. They informed me of and showed me a bank statement where I saw that not only there had been ATM withdrawals but also purchases in bars. They account had been overdrawn and my balance was -2,000 Rubles. The bank teller said whoever used my card in those bars forced through the last transactions knowing there was no balance left. That was all the money I had in Russia back then, all was taken. Thank fuck I had some money in another bank account in my own home country.

I few days after I went back to my bank and they said they were not going to refund me because the correct PIN number had been used for all ATM withdrawals, therefore I was liable. I said I had been drugged and scammed and I had a police report to prove it. It didn’t make any difference. I told them to find the CCTC tapes for the ATM locations where my card was used and they said they needed a police order to do that, which I knew was bullshit. I didn't contact the police to get that order.

I didn’t pursue it with the police, months after they called me on the phone and asked me to come to the police station because they had some information. I never did because I was about to leave Russia for good and I doubted they were going to give me anything back.


Aftermath:
-Tag Heuer watch: Valued at around 1,100 Euros. It was a present.
- Samsung cell phone: Valued at around 150 Euros
- Money in bank account all gone: Around 1,100 Euros.

No physical damage was done to me and I never had or felt any consequences.

This is what happened to me and how I remember it. To this day I still don’t know if I entered my own PIN number for those ATM withdrawals, if I gave the PIN number to the girls or what the hell happened. I didn’t have it written it down somewhere, that’s for sure, and it wasn’t particularly easy to guess, ie no date of birth etc.

I never went back to that bar/those bars. I warned all my friends in the city, though. My roommate didn't have any issues that night at that bar, the other guy who was with us the day after said he couldn't remember anything of that night and he was sick in bed for a few days. When he left the bar he took a taxi back home, passed out and woke up in the taxi near his apartment building and had no cash at all.

Have I been more vigilant and cautious when going out at night from then on? Yes, but I guess there’s been occasions when I left my drink unattended.

If you guys have any questions, feel free to ask.

Stay safe and all the best,

Polero.

If you want played out why are you going to Cartagena. that has the most tourists i believe and the most city that tourists get drugged and robbed from girls.

if you want something not played out look into Pitalito... I was there for a week but i saw lots of potential due to the exotic factor of rarely being any gringos in that city. San agustin yes but not pitalito... Its a little dangerous at night.. I havent seen a police the entire time when i was there for a week. And at night i see sketchy people walking around but if you know spanish and are there for a month or two i think there is potential in that city... its a shit hole, no real resturants... but everything is dirt cheap...

Well, it depends on the kind of girls you're targeting. If you're targeting poorer girls, older girls, or gringo hunters, and showing off your wealth by taking them to fancy restaurants, you're basically running sugar daddy game. Sure, in that case Spanish doesn't make much of a difference.

If you're targeting young estrato 3+ girls, I'd say speaking Spanish will help you out tremendously. Obviously if you look like Chris Hemsworth it doesn't matter.

By the way,

Those are the guys she'll cheat on you with.
I wouldnt date a girl i dont trust. The girls I actually become exclusive with wont cheat. But after you break up with them, you will see how fast things change... Thats why I dont tolerate a girl i am dating to be texting guys everyday and playing it off like "he is just a friend." Those are the same guys that after the relationship ends, she will hook up with for rebound action. Those guys will be the ones to hook up with them when they are heart broken and take advantage of them. Thats why i dont put up with bs with girlfriends having guy friends texting them everyday etc. These are the same ones that will go after your girl when you have a fight or break up.


And it is not sugar daddy game. I paid for the uber to come to me, paid for the drinks and cover charge and paid for the uber to send them home. I dont buy a girl dinne r until i actually fuck them. Its not about the money because that is not an issue, its just that dinner dates you cant escalate, and when she dosent speak your language, wtf is the purpose of that as a first or second date? I will say to them that i want to cook them gringo food. to get them to come over the second date.. All these dates i spoke minimal spanish just danced with them and showed them a good time. made them laugh trying to practice my spanish... tried to sing the spanish songs. etc. If you are a boring person then then yes you wont get laid without spanish. But even without spanish i make the best of my situation.. and use body language and speak the spanish that i know...

Im no sugar daddy. I had a girl i was seeing go up to a store and get chocolate. and looked at me to pay. I told her no. You dont buy something without asking me. The cashier put it in a plate... I said no and kept walking.. you dont just see something and buy it without asking me ... Thats what I told her. I was mad at her earlier because she did not suck my dick... Got denied blow job... The girl still stayed around... and ended up sucking my dick and swallowing my load 2x a week... when i told her i would find someone else that will blow me... till my visa ran out and left.


Iv had a girl buy me dinner in fact.(I felt awful because she was so poor, and i didnt realize how bad it was in south america, this was the first date i had there, not knowing the cultulre) And another one bought herself dinner because she didnt like the street food that i got and offered her... But I know it was just them trying to impress me to make it not obvious they were into my money. Since i have status on social media and shows that I have money.


There was only one girl that I did something close to sugar daddy game with, i took her to santa marta.. we went on a date one and i didnt pull... And she kept giving me bs about going for date #2... then i asked her if she wanted to come to santa marta with me for date(so i have someone to take pictures for me and also not be alone) so for this second date / or trpi whatever..... she came and pulled out... i had to show some sugar to get her for date #2.. this was a 8/10 maybe 8.5/10 that i pulled with minimal spanish... She had the time of her life in in Santa Marta, she took like 100 pictures of herself. i thought it was a little annoying , she went crazy taking tons of pics of herself lol...

I have friends that are sugar daddys... Im nothing like them. I have pride in myself... I have a 400 lb powerlifting friend in SE, when i visted him he had his girlfriend get like 30 meat sticks.. from street food. He said its for her family. lol wtf? ... that is pure sugar daddy stuff.. i am nothing like that..

most of my dates are simple pay for uber, pay for drinks and then bang most of the time... (not always.. some girls play the game not a slut and takes 3-4 dates)


Of course learning spanish should be done to get the most out of colombia... but you can still have a good time without it(I recommend spanish! but if you dont know spanish you still have a good chance at pulling). not every girl will be ok with it, but some dont mind. My trick is to not tell them i dont speak any spanish till we go on a date and give them a chance... make a game out of it... mess around with them.. Tell them i want to lick their titties and bang them. in english.. and laugh your ass off... that they dont understand. or maybe understand parts of it... have a good time. dont take things so seriously...

Also my spanish isnt terrible... i can have 5-10 minute conversations with people. But its basic stuff like why am i here... where am i from.. what do i do for work.... etc. but still i know the basics... how to get by... give directions, how to order food. and all about me in spanish..

One thing.... I have gotten a bit addicted to 3somes in Medellin. Not going to a whore house or looking for prostitutes. That is not my thing. But I bang a normal young woman and I then suggest that she bring a friend the next time. They usually get offended, but a few days later they send a message that a girlfriend is willing to do it for a 100 thousand pesos. No going out to dinner or drinks, so it ends up costing the same. I do not know if most of you guys here are up for that, but it is a pleasurable option now and then.

It feels like the whole city is on the prostitution train. Chatted up a girl in the Los Molinos Mall and got her number. When I asked her out, she said she isn't interested but has a friend who I can fuck in the ass for 80.000. lol

Yes it has gotten worse the last 10 years in that department. Going to Venezuela and Russia soon, but when I come back I will try a different strategy. I have 2 apartments here...one 3 bedroom in el Poblado and in front of mall Oviedo, and another one bedroom in la Floresta. Both are nice, but I currently live in the one in el Poblado.
I speak Spanish perfectly, so will say my parents are Colombian and was born in New York, but decided to return to my homeland. And will live in the estrato 3 one bedroom in la Floresta. With that I might be able to minimize the prostitution train.

I’ll be visiting Colombia 29 Jan-4 Feb. It’s my first visit, going solo. I don’t have any specific plans yet. Thinking of trying to visit Medellin and either Bogota or Cali or Cartagena.

Anyone else passing through or want to show me the local ropes? I’d be happy to tag along! I’ve been out of the game a long time (mid 30s and just got out of a 15 year relationship/marriage), so I could use all the help I can get. Smile

My Spanish is passable.

RE: The Colombia Master Thread
Car bomb attack today in the south of the city at a police training school. At least 8 people killed. Be careful out there fellas, still have to remind many that Colombia is not a safe country. Be interested to see if the ELN take responsibility.

A large explosion has killed at least eight people in the Colombian capital, Bogotá, the country's defence ministry says.

The blast happened outside a school for police cadets in the south of the city.

Thirty-eight people were reportedly injured in the blast which happened at 09:30 local time (14:30 GMT).

Images show a charred vehicle in front of the General Santander school, which is located in a working-class area of Bogotá.

^Good thing they gave Santos the Nobel prize for creating peace in Colombia!

God damned them all, I was told we'd cruise the seas for American gold, we'd fire no guns-shed no tears, now I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier, the last of Barrett's privateers!

How close was the car bomb to the areas most gringos would visit/hang out? Curious if I should take any additional precautions for my trip in 10 days?

It is in the south of Bogota far from the usually tourist zones, however I have noticed an uptick in police presence in all parts of the city. Like I said it will be interesting to see what group takes responsibility for this. If it's just a one time attack or if there is gonna be more attacks to follow........

Lets hope not, yesterday the Colombian media was doing their best to show a united effort against the atttack posting many local celeberties and politicians twitter posts and comments from both sides imploring Colombians to fight for peace and calls to not slip back into violence.

As I tell most people especially newbies here...Colombia is far from safe, things can go from 0-100 very fast here, usually without warning.

Although the bombings often take place in areas far from the tourist zones, sometimes they do happen where guys like us hang out such as the 2017 bombing in Andino mall where most of us have been: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-colom...SKBN19G011

Bombs, scopolamine, shady taxis, street crime, etc there's lots of ways you can in Colombia guys!

Hey Digi,

I'll be there just about the exact same time. I land the 25th and leave the 4th.

Down to hit up some spots, I know the city well.

I'm staying in laureles.

I can't seem to PM yet, so we'll have to figure out a way to hook up.
