One Family's Return Trip: In Home Service


Back in the day, or so my mother tells me, you could get house calls from doctors and other professionals. This is almost unheard of today -- but, not in Colombia. My sister-in-law has this woman come to her home to give haircuts, manicures and pedicures. The cost for each $5,000 pesos (about $2.50 US).


We decided to take advantage of the savings and the males of our clan all got haircuts and I got and manicure and pedicure. The total cost with tip was $15 US. This is what it costs to cut just one boy's hair. Certainly something to consider before coming back to the US, a financial boon for you, and a boost to the local economy -- definitely a win/win!
