More flounders great adventure

Did I tell you exactly where we live now? Well it’s like this we live in what I would refer to as the state of Antioquia, in the county of Medellin, in the city of Bello. Medellin as you might remember was the cocaine capital of the world when the Medellin Cartel was running things under the infamous Pablo Escobar now very dead. You can still bullet holes in a lot of buildings and schools and medical buildings with his name on them. He was definitely a paradox and no I can’t get you any drugs so don’t ask. They have national police check points on most highways in and out of the city they stop mostly motorcycles and small private trucks any one of these check points can issue a few hundred tickets per day to motorcycles. Any one of these check points can issue a few hundred tickets per day to motorcycles. You don’t here to much about crime around here if you get mugged people sort of shrug their shoulders and go on with their life, probably a carryover from the drugs day when people had a tendency not to be alive to testify. Murder is very uncommon in Antioquia, not so for Bogotá as I understand it. Rape goes mostly unreported if and when it does occur. There’s a deferent morality in this country kids drink beer as soon as they can climb up on the bar stool and sex is as soon as they reach puberty which I take is rather early. But who am I to judge I’m a cat and I lick myself.
