I bought a pirated DVD of the movie “Up in the Air” for 3000 pesos ($1.50) on the street, but I dutifully gave the address of Paramount Pictures for the vendor to send a royalty check. Pirated DVDs are a growth industry here, so much so that I doubt it’s possible to buy a legitimate DVD in Colombia.
I hung out most of the day with Eliana whom I met on Couchsurfing. Couchsurfing isn’t just about staying at someone’s place. There are plenty of people who want to meet travelers but can’t or don’t want to host. I ate with the family and we watched 3 straight DVDs in a row. Slothful.
