Comment on Arepas in Colombia by Sofi http://www.expat-chronicles.com/2009/11/arepas-in-colombia/comment-page-1/#comment-336814 Sun, 19 Oct 2014 20:02:13 +0000 http://www.expat-chronicles.com/?p=3137#comment-336814 Que desafortunada opinión de las arepas a mí me gustan todas, menos la paisa en la que concuerdo con el post porque son muy simples, yo tampoco las como, pero noto algo y es que casi todas tus referencias de la comida están basadas en restaurantes de Bogotá. Si bien te diría que las mejores comidas típicas salvo el ajiaco, las encuentras fuera de la capital, la arepa santandereana por ejemplo no es una sola hay tres tipos de arepa santandereana, la de maíz blanco que usualmente es rellena, la de maíz amarillo que usualmente se usa para empanadas y la de maíz pelado (que es parecida a la foto que pusiste) las cuales sin dudarlo son las mejores del país, seguidas de las costeñas.

Comment on The Final Word on Bricheras by Cyrana http://www.expat-chronicles.com/2009/04/the-final-word-on-bricheras/comment-page-1/#comment-323003 Fri, 10 Oct 2014 22:46:33 +0000 http://www.expat-chronicles.com/?p=1227#comment-323003 Hi, here back with my comments: The problem of ugly or beautiful is a brainwash issue. Who can really say who is pretty or ugly? The magazines? TV? newspapers?. And who owns them?.
That there is great ignorance in the third world countries and the lower socio-economic layers of the developed countries, that is the problem.

Many people in South America inflate their egos by using a foreign last name without even knowing if it belong to a serial killer. For some would be better to be a Bundy (American Serial killer) rather than an Olaya ( a Peruvian hero) or a Fritz (Belgium incestuous paedophile) rather than a Katari (Bolivian Hero).

And the situation goes worst for some of other countries like in Chile where the German Paul Shafer ex Nazi, paedophile was given special treatment to even adopt Chilean children who had some financial difficulties. I can go on with a number of examples because I have many.

An in the developed countries the ignorance about important issues is rampant, most of the people are only thinking on personal gratification and get more and more of whatever and what not instead of paying attention to what is going around them,

By the way 2014 USA population: male 19,122,853 /female 24,774,052 this is information for Owekeh .

Comment on All Colombian Women Cheat by Ana http://www.expat-chronicles.com/2011/05/all-colombian-women-cheat/comment-page-4/#comment-317428 Tue, 07 Oct 2014 08:43:37 +0000 http://www.expat-chronicles.com/?p=5127#comment-317428 Well, I am just very much sorry you all had those horrible experiences with Colombian women. I am not going to claim women in my country are or are not anything in particular. I am just going to say that judging all of us because you had bad experiences with some Colombian women is unfair. I could easily say Americans have a very bad reputation as well, both men and women, not only here but all around the world. However, I know that is just a stereotype. I have known wonderful people from the US, very decent men and women. It is just that I did not look for them in bars or nightclubs while I was trying to get laid as you said. I met them while studying in good universities, while traveling or at work. It is obvious for me that you are talking about poor women with very little education -you met them in bars, they have plastic surgeries and children with different dads-. If you are going to judge all of us at least do not go for the weak and desperate, I am sure I would have the same impression of the US if I would have done what you did here

Comment on Why You Should Not Work Abroad by Alice http://www.expat-chronicles.com/2014/05/reasons-not-to-work-abroad/comment-page-1/#comment-312081 Thu, 02 Oct 2014 13:54:58 +0000 http://www.expat-chronicles.com/?p=13777#comment-312081 When I first read the title – I was thinking what a bad title! But I couldn’t agree more with you with some of your points. Also I have to agree with @Rubio…education standards are different across the world, where the education can provide much more stability to ones qualifications. However, I can’t agree with @Esteban.H as you mention developed countries? There are a number of DEVELOPING countries at present who will be the gold wagons of the earth in the next 20 years.
