Being back in the US has given us a chance to catch up with family and friends who inevitable asked us questions about our 6 month trip to South America.
We’d say, “Oh, we started in Colombia then we went south to Ecuador, Peru, and Chile…”
Usually as soon as they hear he word ‘Colombia’, they seem to tune out the rest of what we’re saying. Their eyebrows would lift up and we could see the question forming in their head from a mile away…
“What’s it like traveling in Colombia? Is it dangerous?”
