Dear Advisor Partners,
It’s that time again, my annual visit to Colombia, visit number 41. Our first dispatch comes from Bogota as we begin what will be a historic adventure. Arrival in Bogota was seamless, and it was great seeing my family here again. One aspect that I am really proud of is the amount of history and first-time innovations the Big Five team has in place in Colombia.
As you know, Big Five prides itself on sustainable initiatives and a commitment to leaving this world in a better place than we found it. Well, that now starts with an arrival into Bogota where we are proudly the first company to use an electric car for airport transfers in Bogota. Even though the charging grid is still under construction in Colombia, we have the schedules organized very well to allow transfers to always be done on a full charge.
Carrying on into Bogota, one cannot visit Bogota without visits to the local markets or the historic district, and trying local fruits, some of which I grew up eating in Africa. At one point, I was so immersed in being back in Colombia that I mistook an onion for a grape.
Stay tuned for Part II, where we really start making history in Colombia. Until then, enjoy the video!
