Hi everyone! I'm new in town along with my husband, he is working here for a while and we were hoping to get out of the hotel and into a semi permanent place. We found a flat with a six month contract and we need to furnish it. Since I don't know how long we will be staying (6 months for now but might be longer term) I don't want to go out and buy all new things that we might need to get rid of in a few months so I'm looking for second hand furniture to get started. Does anyne have some for sale or knows where I can find some? Many thanks
Dear all, I have been having severe problems with the wifi in my appartment. I guess it's because there are just too many wifis from the other flats nearby, so there's too much overlap. I wanted to change the channel of my wifi in the router, but if I understood my provider correctly that's not allowed. Any experiences with that problem?
Hey, I have some electric appliances (mostly decorative) from the UK and I'm thinking of bringing them into Colombia, I just wanted to know about the electricity here. I know the power outlets are differet but would a store bought adapter sufice? Would I need a transformer? Thanks for your help. George
Good day everyone! I was directed to this forum by a colleague, I've moved to the city with my wife and three kids for work. Well I'm already here, they are coming at the end of october, and I need to have everything setup for them. I wanted to know about heating, as far as I can tell it gets pretty chilly here at night but houses don't have central air or heating, we will be living in a rental so I don't think I should pay to install it in the house, what do you guys do? is it worth buying portable electric heaters? or will blankets do the trick? I appreciate your help and experience
Hi guys! Well this one is a little awkward to ask, but I guess maybe one of you might have the answer; is it ok to flush toilet paper? I've lived and stayed in places in Latin America where flushing toilet paper would cause a major collapse in the septic tank. Could any one explain how it works in Bogota?
