My name is Mark J. Armstrong and my life was literally saved by a Colombiana.
Yes, it's true. A Colombian-American saved my life.
That’s how I got to know this awesome country and its vibrant people. Look, it's a long, romantic story and I will write a book about her and some of my other Colombian adventures someday.
I don't even care if anyone reads it. You know why?
Just reliving these exciting times will be satisfaction enough for me. haha.
(but all kidding aside, you WILL want to read it)
That’s one of the reasons I have decided to make this website for Best Of Colombia.
I have traveled to Colombia on many occasions and have had many wonderful experiences and amazing adventures.I’ll be telling you more about these when you become a FREE Member. Just enter your email on the lower right side of any page.
Some of you may remember me from when I published the Colombian Post Online back in the early years of the Internet. (the print newspaper was owned by a separate entity in Bogota)
I was bringing the Colombian News in English to Americans and others who didn't speak Spanish. This was before Google News and Google Translator.
A LOT of people received my positive news about Colombia each day.
I was a 1 man army combating the news media propaganda and was a booster of Colombia even before Bill Clinton started sending the country Billion$ every year.
I was promoting Colombia way before it became fashionable to do so. The Colombia I first met was MUCH different than it is today. You all know what I mean.
You know, sometimes I even feel that I have some Colombian blood flowing in my veins. haha.
You probably know a lot of Colombian-Americans. I’m more like an American-Colombian!
Anyway, I will be working hard on this and many of the other Colombian and Caribbean websites I’m launching in 2017. So check daily for new updates.
It’s all for a great cause for the Caribbean "Costenas" and Islanders. Check it out later.
Make sure I have your email address so you find out the whole story about how my life was saved by that Colombiana more than 20 years ago. Make sure you're on my mailing list.
I’m based north of Miami, near a great Colombian Paisa restaurant, El Balcon.
So, if you ever want to buy me lunch and hear about some of my Colombian Adventures…haha
Speaking of Colombian Adventures, here's my Friend Al trying to find love with a Colombiana...haha, this guy IS persistent!
See how he makes out!
