You Know You're Colombian When...
As you’ll see in this post, sometimes people have trouble distinguishing what makes someone, or something (for example, a cat) Colombian. Well, we put the question to you guys to find out if there are any ways (besides a passport check) to tell if you are Colombian. Take heed.
This is an on-going post, so join in the fun!
