As promised, here is another story about Venezuelans in Colombia.
Last week, I was out for lunch with a couple of friends and I heard the young woman taking my money say “Chamo,” to the young man who was serving me.
Chamo is the Colombian nickname for Venezuelan.
We ended up having a wee chat. He has been in Colombia for a couple of years and is doing well. He now has stable employment (at the beginning he just had to take whatever came to hand), he has his papers in order and is paying his health insurance and into a pension.
An exemplary immigrant story.Share this post:
