    Why would anyone travel here?

    1. Some people think Colombia is beautiful.

    2. I have no idea what they're talking about.

    3. Their churches? Mediocre.

    4. Their UNDERGROUND churches? Even more mediocre.

    5. The graffiti looks like a 5th grader drew it.

    6. I mean, I could definitely do this with my eyes closed.

    7. Their waterfalls? Overrated.

    8. Their beaches? Who cares?

    9. Don't even get me started on their colorful rivers.

    10. The El Peñón rock isn't even that impressive.

    11. And the view from the top is nothing special.

    12. The town of Guatapé is kind of colorful, but not really.

    13. Who even enjoys color?

    14. Jericó isn't charming in the least.

    15. And the view of the town from the top of the hill is just OK.

    16. Who cares if Colombia is known for the "best" coffee in the world?

    17. And what is so appetizing about arepas con queso?

    18. Jardín? Meh.

    19. The Lost City? Not interesting at all.

    20. Bogotá is just another episode of Narcos.

    21. And so is Medellín.
