I’m originally from Bogota Columbia. Bogota has roughly 10 million people in the City, so I was looking for a community that I could be part of that would allow me to fully immerse myself in. I wanted to know what it was like to be Minnesotan. This area is so rich in culture – I mean, seriously, who says uff dah and eats lutefisk? I wanted a larger “small” community, and Alexandria was that fit.
