How well can I live off $3,500 a month. My colombian wife and I. I would prefer a estrada 6 lifestyle. I do speak Spanish. Feiz Navidad a todos mis amigos en Cali.
#david on Dec 19, 2018 :
very helpful. Many facts which confirm why I come here for a few months to save money as I live in wonderful but horrendously expensive Zurich most of the rest of the time. I often comment that there is less actual begging* in Cali than there is is Geneva.
* meaning asking for money without actually doing anything such as cleaning the windscreen.

Very helpful, but what does it cost to buy and actual single bed there?
