colombia is passion

Date June 4, 2008

Here’s a little taste of Colombia. Yes, it’s a cheesy sort of promo video, but it also clues you into some lesser known facts about this country I’m in for awhile. It also definitely has the, um… Colombian sentiment. I’ve heard the word passion more in the last year than I’d care to admit. It’s a little disturbing, but somehow endearing, too. If that’s possible.

Nah, you’re right. It’s just disturbing.

FYI: The kid that narrates this video sounds a lot like the kids I teach everyday, but his accent is a little better. We’re a work in progress.

So, what do you think? Wanna come for a visit?

    Of course I’d LOVE to come visit, but unfortunately want and ability are two different things. 🙁 It amused me that they compared beautiful women and orchids in the same sentence.

    And what’s up with all the white people? I thought you were in South America!

    I wanna come! I wanna come! (I’m serious.)
    What a beautiful accent that is, especially compared to the Konglish I hear every day!

    I would have to ditto Summers entire comment. Women and orchids?
    Yes I would love to come. The only pictures I had of Columbia before you were from the movies and they were not safe – Romancing the Stone (hahaha) and Proof of Life (I think that is the name and I am not sure if that was the setting but it had Meg Ryan and Russell Crowe)

    Is that crazy or what? hahahahahaha

    Since Stephen left his 2 cents I thought I’d leave mine.

    My favorite quote:

    I also thought of all the weiners and white people, but would never have perverted your site with such things. I do apologize on his behalf.
