Andrew Dier and his Colombian partner Vio arrived in Bogota from New York City in 2002. It was initially supposed to be a temporary move--a change of scenery for a while--but 10 years and a couple of adopted street dogs later, bustling Bogota has gradually become their home.
Excited to share his newfound insider perspective on Colombia with others, Andrew traveled the country corner to corner to research "Moon Colombia." Colombia has experienced great change during the past decade, transforming itself from a no-go to a must-see destination. Andrew is continuously astounded by the natural beauty of the country and touched by the genuine warmth of its people.
Andrew is a regular contributor to "The City Paper, " an English-language newspaper in Bogota, and has written for a number of publications in the United States. He's also become a deft translator, mostly for local nonprofit organizations.
