Colombia isn’t probably what you think it is, especially if you’ve never traveled. What you know about Colombia probably comes from movies, TV, rumors, and crappy Vice.com pieces. The real Colombia is a vibrant and beautiful place with much to offer. Can it be dangerous? Yes, just like Chicago, New York, Detroit, and Oakland. There’s plenty of history and culture to be experienced if you travel there, and you might be surprised to find they have a booming tourism industry! Also, in the more popular areas many people speak English, so you don’t really need to learn that much Spanish. So sit back and take in the fun facts about one of South America’s greatest countries.
