This is the way my country looks from the outside. Now I
want you to see it from the inside. Because this is how you would really get
know, who we are, how we act and what we dream!
Because if there is something we colombians actually
are is dreamers and.... if this is a magical country.... full of colors,
flavors, places, GOOD PEOPLE.... MANY, MANY GOOD PEOPLE !!
make art falling in love with the rythm of accordions, people who bring us glory
in sports, sweethearts, friends, children, we colombians are ordinary people,
people with problems, but who are known the less consider to be amongs the
happiest under the sun!
It takes a full year to get acquainted with
all of our festivasl and celebrations because we have one for every single day
of the year. The Barranquilla Carnival, the Cali Fair, the International Book
Fair, Rock at the Park, Colombiamoda, the Iberoamerican Theater Festival wich by
the way it´s the biggest one in the world.
All this shows that there is
more to this country that meets the eye! .... There are oceans, beaches, all
posible climates any time of the year, spanish colonial architecture, modern
architecture, handcrafts for expert, there is progress, exquisite coffee,
countless beautiful women and orchids.

ones... We have musicians... see Juanes.. a grammy winner... one of the world´s
Shakira the girl, entires countries have falling in love
