  1. Hi, I wanted to contact you, but I can’t find an email anywhere.

    ” I was also denied a job at a language institute because, as it got back to me later from a friendly co-worker, the person in charge loved my résumé but didn’t like my picture. My phenotype also makes a difference in how I’m treated here, as when I don’t speak, I blend in with the general population.”

    I wanted to ask about the job discrimination you received. For most of the Columbian teaching jobs, were you recommended by a friend, co-worker, or another person who you had connections? I heard that is very difficult to secure a job in Latin America without some sort of connections or inside recommendation, is this true?

    Also, what about female working expats who have a phenotype similar to Naomi Campbell or Gabrielle Union? Would it be harder to secure a teaching job in these countries if I don’t have a lighter skin like Beyonce?

    I understand in the DR and maybe some other countries, it may be possible to bypass this if I dress on-point and have my hair straightened and styled, but is that true for the other countries you visited. Do educated working blacks look more ‘done up’?

    I was just curious, because I’m interested in working abroad as well.

  2. I am a full-time world traveler as well and love doing photography and videography more than anything…. Anyhow I wanted to introduce you to my site, Join Us Around the World.com. It’s a social media site designed to connect travelers and build new friendships with people from Around the World. Kind of like a Facebook for travelers. Staying connected, sharing helpful tips and meeting people you never imagined. Now that the site is back up and officially a social media site and no longer just a blog I am trying to reach out to the travel community to see what you think and hopefully have you share your travels with others as well. It looks like things are going great on your end and any feedback or thoughts would be great… We are running a contest right now to pay for 1 lucky winners Passport so they can start traveling the world too. If you can help spread the word that would be amazing! http://www.juatw.com … Travel safe and I hope to hear back from you soon.
