Food = L♥ve

Your mom, aunt and grandma will show you how much they love you by making every kind of dish under the sun for any given occasion. It can be your high school graduation, your birthday, your kindergarten graduation, they day you get your driving license, or just a regular Thursday, you will eat your weight in food. And you will eat all of it. Nobody wants to break their grandma's heart.

It's like thanksgiving every single day.

You know how many micro-Colombias there are.

You don't need to leave the country to change completely where you are. We have the coastal one, the Caribbean one, the one with the coffee, the one with the jungle, the one in the mountains. And so on, and so forth.

You know we're not as Caribbean as people think we are.

We have all kinds of weather! Rain! Sun! Ok, mostly rain and sun in all its variation around the country, and in Bogota. You never know what you're getting in this city.

You have a love/hate relationship with this

Aguardiente, or Fire Water. A derived liquid from sugarcane with a 60% of alcohol and an anise flavor to it. It will cure broken hearts, will make you braver, stonger and stupider.

You know you have an accent. And you like it.

Even in Colombia, depending on what part of the country you are originally come from, you will have a particular accent. And then you'll meet other accented people. Hilarity will ensue.
