But in the meanwhile, there is a major refugee crisis there, with folks fleeing Venezuela.
How bad is it? Even Russia and China are pulling out...
Unofficially it is believed nearly a million Venezuelan refugees are now in Colombia. Since late 2016 most of them were not looking to resume careers but to escape death from hunger, disease and a growing number of other problems. While many go to Brazil or North America over 90 percent now head for Colombia because it is all they can afford.
I have a son in Colombia, but not in this area. His main danger is from the nearby volcano, which has been quiet for the last ten years.
