    Overall, no. She can't wait to return to Scotland in a few years.

    I can only go by what she tells me, and it sounds like there are a lot of good things about it, but there are aspects that make life difficult and that's before you take the language barrier and cultural adjustment into account. She has what seems like trivial issues, such as saying the bread there is * and you can generally only get one type of white cheese. Finding herbs and spices is extremely difficult and a lot of dishes there are bland. Driving is chaotic. Public transport is always rammed and you literally have to fight your way onto a bus by elbowing people out the way. There are no trains in Bogota.

    She also gets charged 'white people prices' whenever it isn't a fixed price and due to the history of the country, everyone has an attitude of only looking out for themselves. She's gets strangers asking very intrusive questions often, particularly because she's a 'gringa'. Finding work in her industry is also tough, due to the language barrier. So aye, I can understand why she's found it difficult, having to learn a new language and settle in thousands of km from home.

    But then there are amazing moments such as sitting on her balcony or by her pool and a hummingbird buzzes by.

    She doesn't take it. It's also something I've never asked my Colombian sister-in-law about, as it's a pretty offensive thing to joke about to people there, considering the damage the cartel has done to the country.
