In addition to sending out these updates on the 1st of every month, we’ve also created an Events Calendar. Know of a cool event going on that’s not already listed? Add it yourself by filling out this form. It’s completely free! Dave will be moderating new submissions to make sure they’re legit. 

Now comes the calm.

Everyone partied for a month in December, especially Atletico Nacional fans because their team did something great: win all three major Colombian tournaments in the same calendar year.

January will be a time to relax and recover. But if you’re looking for something to do, we have some suggestions.

Have fun!

Known as a Christian feast day, this celebration of symbolism of God the Son as a human being is more likely a day for barbecues in Medellin.
