Colombia after ongoing exploration of almost 3 month and now more than 6 month outside from Colombia. The goal of this article is to write like I did for the Retro Perspective Paraguay article a while ago. It’s a interdisciplinary mix of: biological, geographical and
Retro Perspective Colombia
The conclusion so far is that Colombia is not what we where looking for. I’m my naivety and ignorance :-) We hoped to find the Colombia I knew from living there during 85 – 86 and when I visited again during a few weeks in the year 1997. Of course that Colombia had long been exchanged with a totally different Colombia. Change is the only constant in life … In my memories I had a clear beautiful, romantic, chaotic picture of Colombia and its warm hearted people. Back then it was most normal NOT be on time etc. nowadays thanks to the great globalization Colombians are more on time than a few Swiss citizen I know… The so called progress / modernization and globalization seems to have eaten my Colombia … in a breeze of air – record time. Never less we have met old and new friends and it was after all again very enriching.
Our expectations where very high but Colombians tourist agency say that: “The risk of Colombia is you may want to never leave.” This obviously did not work out as planned because right now we are in Ecuador.
