Of course! But sadly, inthe context of a heavily publicized country such as mine, exotic doesn’t become analogous to “new and exciting”, but to “stereotypically latin/tropical”. For instance, there was an outrage by the time “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” (remember that awful movie with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie?) came out, because it portrayed Bogotá as a hot, humid, dusty, god-forsaken land full of stereotypically mexican-looking people, while Bogotá is quite the opposite. So many American tourists come to Bogotá, and see skyscrapers and highways and ask: “well, where’s the shacks? And the cows? I didn’t think there would be a full blown city in this place! With people actually clothed and everything!” (I’ve actually *heard* that from an American tourist, who thought that nobody could understand him). Colombia receives many tourists of this kind, which makes the average Colombian think that the american tourist is loud, rude and condescending, which i know for a fact most of them are not. That’s why i’m asking you to come with an open mind and leave your expectations and everything you’ve heard behind, that way you’ll have a great time having fun with the wonders this place has to offer.

I guess i’m not getting my point across quite clearly, as I have to make corrections to my previous statements as I comment, but what I mean is that Colombia is full of new, exciting stuff, and many people get turned off for not finding their tropical, banana republic experience first hand, but instead a diverse, thriving, developing country. Come and see, it’s great, and i guarantee you won’t be bored a second of your stay.
