My Colombian Death by Matthew Thompson
Book DescriptionKidnappings, car bombs, cocaine, paramilitaries, bullfights, the Amazon and madness. Welcome to Colombia, where life is cheap and so are the drugs. In 2006, Matt Thompson travelled to Colombia in search of the life he might have led. Born to American parents, Matt's father was offered a post which would have taken the family to Bogota, but he turned it down because it was too high-risk. Instead, they came to Australia - low-risk, even paradisiacal - and the land that nearly drove Matt to a slow death from boredom. One day he quit his job, picked up his bag and decided to go experience life in the country that is not only the most dangerous in South America, but possibly the world. This is the story of what happened next. Part Heart of Darkness, part Marching Powder, My Colombian Death is a wild ride to the edge and beyond.
