Colombia is not Only about Tango
The colors in the Colombian flag tend to remind people of the vitality that its culture and people have. It is not surprising as it brings to mind hot weather and a beautiful culture that is celebrated and still alive and well. It is said that outside Argentina, Colombia is where tango is sung and danced best. It can sound strange but the fact is that Carlos Gardel, the most renowned tango singer of old times, died in a plane crash in Medellin and from that moment Colombians made Gardel Colombian.
From Colombia with Love
This only talks on how affectionate and welcoming Colombians are. It is no wonder that coffee, their most important export and by which they are internationally known, is beverage that makes people gather. Of course, Colombia is not all about tango and coffee, because it is a modern country with a thriving economy. The traveler will notice the country's empowered spirit as he or she walks around its most important cities, starting with Bogota. If in the past Buenos Aires and Santiago were the Latin American darlings, now Bogota is just taking that favored place. It is no wonder: the city has grown enormously and now it is a metropolis of all sorts. Medellin, the next important city, is a national and even a continental model of efficiency and social integration that is evident as the traveler wanders around its financial district. The curious traveler can try other regions where nature keeps even more surprises for him or her. He or she can head North to the coast of the Caribbean sea, or South to the entrance to the Amazon. It is up to you. By all means, this is a great traveler souvenir to take back home.
