    Peso

    The Colombian Peso is now at 3,400 to the US Dollar. Could make things a little cheaper in Colombia. Like in the bars and casas with the chicas, you can save a few a few bucks.

    Most expats stick within their comfort zone. That means shopping at Carulla or Exito. It means staying in estrato 5 or 6 neighborhoods. It means air conditioning and clothes dryers. Because of these things, they pay more. Many also look at it as an opportunity to upgrade. They can get a 3 bedroom place for cheaper than the 2 bedroom they had. It's still cheaper, but they don't get to the best level.

    All those stores don't have 2 sets of prices. But you can often go down the street to another store and buy groceries for 20-50% less.
    Thanks for the info, sorry I didn't mean gringo prices I meant the price on the website for was living like a local whereas an expat would, as you say, want a higher standard of living.

    Numbeo Cost of Living Index

    I have attached a link to a site called "Numbeo". If you want to evaluate the cost of living for Colombia (or any where else for that matter) this site will be a big help.

    I used it initially to screen various countries and cities abroad that might be a good place to retire and practice a hobby that we all seem to share. It isn't a commercial.

    Site, doesn't cost anything, doesn't require a sign up or anything.

    Bank robbing

    My bank with the free Visa card doesn't have branches, it's online only. Is this kind of banking not common in the US these days? I closed my last account with a traditional bank some fifteen years ago, because they annoyed me. I haven't needed to visit a branch since.

    As the European writer Brecht once noted: What is the robbing of a bank compared to the founding of a bank?

    Agreed, but you should really look for a better bank.

    The withdrawal limit at Davivienda depends on the card. I've seen this. On my card (most cards, I guess) the menu goes up to 320 k but you can go to "other amount" and enter 400,000. 00.

    Don't be shy. Be a man and do what you have to do when it's your turn. Colombians will understand.

    You are quite right, of course. But Western Union's main business is taking money from poor migrant workers who are sending small amounts to their poor families back home.

    Oh, and mongers shouldn't be sending money to providers who are far away, but handing it over in person.
