Colombia is not THE most dangerous country in the world, but unfortunately it is well up there. Is it a fact? Yes, but a sad one. However, there is SO much more to Colombia than the stereotypes of cocaine and murder (I for one don't remember saying otherwise), and its many virtues far outweigh its few faults, which occur to a greater extent in Brazil, Venezuela, South Africa, etc.
First of all, Colombia is rich in mineral and agricultural resources: coffee, emeralds, flowers, etc. The quality of its coffee and emeralds is world-renowned and makes them very desirable.
Second, it is one of the most geographically varied nations in the world: it's the only country in South America (I'm not including Mexico or Central America) with an Atlantic AND a Pacific coastline, three ranges of the Andes run north-south through it (Bogotá is built on a plateau in the Andes), the Amazon jungle comprises much of the southeastern part of the country, and Cristobal Colon, South America's second-tallest mountain, is at its northern end.
Third, Colombians have a reputation in South America for being very cultured and sophisticated. Bogotá is one of Latin America's great cultural centers, and is renowned and beloved by travellers who have visited it (I'm not one of them...yet). And its murder rate, as mentioned before, is a LOT lower than my own country's capital, Washington DC; though both cities are getting better year by year.
So don't take offense if some people are a bit ignorant of the facts; you think it's easy for me living in New York and having to tolerate the outdated, uninformed, nasty crap I've heard about my city? Laugh, inform them that they're wrong, and move on to the next.
a nice country in south america, many ignorant idiots dont know about, all they know is drugs, that is it
colombia has a nice culture, and a variety of people, from blonde haired blue eyed folks, to dark so dark they are almost blue folks, one thing colombians have in common is that they look hot, whoever says colombia means drugs, can go suck their grannies tities, i am not colombian, however i have been there, and that country rules!!!
they got some of the hottest women u can ever come across.
colombia has gotten some hot women, i wouldnt mind marrying one.
One of the greatest countries in the world, filled with nice people and beautiful that you are not gonna find in any other country, EVER.
Well, many ignorants think that we are all about drugs, violence, guerrilla and fake-ass bitches, but we aren't, and that fake image media have been showing for years of our conutry couldn't be more stupid.
It piss us off that some ignorants ask us if we do speak english, or if we live under rocks, of if we have some coke of if we eat burritos!!!OMG!!! we're not beasts neither dealers nor mexicans!!!What the fuck is wrong with you people? We're just as good as anyone and we don't need more ignorants talkin shit about us, but i you wanna do it, we won't kill you, we're not getting to your level.We'll you laugh until you learn thata the world is more than just banalities.
Clobian???hahahaha..that's just way to pathetic!!!Colombia just rocks, no examples are needed!!!Viava colombia papá!!
The best country in the world. It is by far the most beautiful in the world, and the only reason i'm not living there is because of the idiots that call themselves guerillas!
my cousin's grandfather was kidnapped by the guerillas
People who have never been to Colombia need to realize that their comments are only based on ignorance and what the media has fed them. Mr.Valdez and Mr.Escobar are not the only people to come out of the country. People, like the Idiot that came up with definition #6 of Colombia, were probably dumped by a hot colombian chick because of performance reasons, and now refer to them as stuck up. Colombia is filled with rolling green mountains, beautiful flowers, oceans, emeralds, culture, fantastic food and gorgeous kind men and WOMEN!
Nelly couldn't perform in bed so the hot Colombian chick told him to take a hike.
it is one of the best countries in the world in my opinion there are sum fine ass girls down there now it might be dangerous but only if your in the wrong places so if you ever want to go somewhere where u can relax go to cartagena,colombia trust me its siiiickk and ignore that mutherfuker who said that its a fugly country and dat da chicks are too lik seriously get a fukin life yo.
wow i went to colombia and there were these fine ass blondes yo kinda looked like shakira
Country poorly portrayed in the film "Mr. and Mrs. Smith": helicopters bombing Bogotá, an apocalyptic scenario with houses on fire, illustrating the capital as a rural little town with no buildings or evidence of any urban development. Hotels with fans give the idea of an unbearable heat, even though Bogotá is 2640 meters (8661 feet) above sea level. No pavement on the streets and a bar filled with rioted chicken. The actors who play the part of the police men in this Colombia deplorable cartoon wear weird uniforms and speak with Mexican/Caribbean accents even though Bogotá is not anywhere near the coast and some Colombian regions are recognized for having one of the best Spanish in Central and South America, and are even criticized/made fun of by the rest of the country for having a somewhat stiff accent.
Less than four weeks after its release in Colombia, the General Secretary of the City Hall, Enrique Borda, sent a letter of protest to the director Doug Liman. In the letter he states that "It is evidenced, beyond any doubt, that the director and his production crew show a total level of ignorance by portraying (the city) as incipient (...), primitive, with scarce hotel infrastructure, dominated by poverty, depressed, disorganized, with high levels of violence; in conclusion, totally chaotic and not attractive at all". Borda also points out in his text that Colombia was awarded with the title of "City of Peace" by the Unión de Ciudades Capitales Iberoamer...
