Saw a commercial a few days ago on CNN advertising tourism in Colombia.
Colombia is a place that I’d love to visit, but Colombia’s got a ways to go in sprucing up their reputation for prospective tourists. Every time I mention to one of my friends that I want to visit Colombia, I always get the “look”. The “are you crazy, aren’t you afraid to be kidnapped” look. Well, Colombia’s aware of the fear, playing off of it with the tag line on their website reading “Colombia, the only risk is wanting to stay.”
