Summary

I learned so much about Colombia! They have a very different kind of diet than America. They have similar holidays to America. They have a leader (president) so does America. They have a few people that were born there and are now famous for something. They have lots of very pretty sight seeing and places to visit especially if you're just traveling.

Colombia Tourism Video - YouTube

Medellin is one of the most beautiful cities on South America also called the City of the Eternal Spring. Amazon Rainforest covering over 1 billion acres in Colombia, Venezuela, Brazil, Ecuador and Peru, the Amazon Rainforest produces around 20% of the worlds oxygen and contains half of the planets estimated species of plants, animals and insects. Cartagena is another of Colombia’s popular cities which combines a wealth of history with modern conveniences, 5 star luxury hotels and beautiful Caribbean beaches. The historic centre of Cartagena is labelled a UNESCO World Heritage Site and should top any travellers list of places to see, especially by night when it is at its prettiest. Mompox is located on an island in the Magdalena River and another of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites due to its well preserved colonial architecture, Mompox (Santa Cruz de Mompox) is definitely worth a visit if you want to experience the town that time forgot.

Eating Ants in Bogota, Colombia - YouTube

There are lots of different foods Colombians eat that we don't. Arepa is the basic side to any Colombian meal. It is a bread made from cornmeal, similar to a thick pancake. It is normally eaten with an adornment of butter, although sometimes corn is added. They eat ants as seen in the video. Chunchullo is stuffed and fried poultry or cow intestines. I don't think my stomach could handle neither ants or chunchullo.
