It is sad to say that Poor But Happy (Colombia) is closing its doors after a 10-year run as the go-to forum for finding out more about Colombian life. The forums will stay open for a short period but then the site will cease to exist.
The reason? Apparently some harrassing was going on between members and I guess it reached the point to where the moderators found that closing down was the only option. For those in search of some sort of a continuation of what the site stood for, you’re in luck because Poorbuthappy2 at Ning has popped up. I can also suggest the Colombia group at CouchSurfing (sign-up req.), although most of what gets posted there deals with logistics planning rather than culture.
