As readers know, Laura Mariño is a regular contributor to the Blog. She writes from Columbia where she teaches and works on the farm with her husband. She is a graduate of VIU’s philosophy program where she contributed a great deal. Her next “Letter from South America” will be up tomorrow.
Marino grew up in the mountain town of Socorro before enrolling
in engineering at Javeriana University in Bogota. She was encouraged to pursue
the field by her brother and she achieved success working on major
communications projects. She worked for a time as an engineer in Miami, then
came to British Columbia in 2003 after taking time off to sail the East Coast
from Annapolis to the Caribbean. It was during that time off that she met the
Canadian sailor who would entice her to move to Gabriola Island and marry.

She writes, “ I’m living in Colombia now, teaching English and enjoying farm life with my husband Kelly and my five dogs.”
