Medellin Guru recently launched the Medellin Guru Events & Discussion Forum on Facebook and we look at 9 reasons to join this new Medellin Guru group.

Many readers of the Medellin Guru website asked that we start having Medellin Guru events and also provide a discussion forum for readers.

This Facebook group is intended for the readers and followers of Medellin Guru and other expats and readers interested in sharing experiences and ideas about living in Medellín and visiting Medellín and Colombia.

Also, we plan to have regular monthly Medellin Guru meetups in Medellín where you will have the opportunity to interact with the Medellin Guru writers and other expats in Medellín. And our first official Medellin Guru meetup was in August.

We also welcome discussions in this Medellin Guru Facebook group. And you will be able to ask questions via this group to the Medellin Guru writers and other experienced expats living in Medellín.
