lcohol, Food, Culture,
nd Everyday Life
Drinking booze in a foreign country (or your own country for that matter) can be a very rewarding experience. However, finding the best brands or types can be difficult, especially if you don't speak the language. Even though many foreign brands of liquor are exported to the United States, there are many more brands which are not. While Colombia is known for its coffee, seemingly infinite varieties of fruit, and emeralds, it does not carry as high a reputation for its nationally produced liquor as some of its Latin American neighbors such as Chile and Argentina. However, like most countries, Colombia does produce a number of different alcoholic beverages. Not many of these are exported though, so you must visit Colombia to enjoy them. This website was created to help anyone who is planning a trip to Colombia to sift through the different types and classes of nationally produced alcohol. The types discussed are divided into three categories: beer wine , and other types of liquor. Each page contains a list of brands, descriptive comments about the entry, and key words and phrases related to the category of liquor.

Families go to these Ferias , especially on Sunday, to have fun and buy some things for themselves or for their houses.
Each town in my country has traditional things which symbolize part of our culture, like sculptures, clothes made by hand, jewelry, leather articles, and many crafts. So, during the whole year, people from different towns go to places called Ferias in big cities in the country to exhibit these crafts in order to show their abilities and to make money. The places also have a big area where you can eat and play. Families go to these Ferias , especially on Sunday, to have fun and buy some things for themselves or for their houses. These Ferias are more popular in touristic cities, and they are open the whole day. Foreign people buy a lot of these articles for souvenirs, which help them remember the wonderful time they had in Colombia.

? Colombian culture is characterized by a system of values which places the needs and rights of the family and community over individual needs
? Gender Roles are more clearly defined in Colombia than they are in the US
? Religion (Roman Catholicism) plays a larger role in Colombia, as a whole, than in the United States
? The most common greeting is a handshake. Colombians shake hands frequently. There is a specific role of handshaking – the man-to-man handshake is not vigorous, women usually shake hands with other women they clasp forearms, if not well acquainted women often times just say “hello”
? Even if tired or busy Colombians always try to have a smile and a good word for someone
? Discussions of politics should be avoided
? It is not considered improper for a Colombian to arrive later than the designated time for an appointment, except if they are from the city where promptness is more closely observed
? Yawning in the presence of strangers is considered impolite
? People beckon others with palm downward, waving the fingers or the whole hand
? If any one of the extended family has a resource, such as a good job or nice home they are expected to share it with their relatives

If Archeology students had the opportunity to take courses about colombian cultureand archeology, they would learn a lot about its culture, archeology, history 1/andres_from_colombia.htm
Andres from Colombia
In December 1994, I took a trip around Mexico. Basically, I went to Yucatan, and the principal Mayas Archeological places, such as, Chichen - Itza, Cozumel, X – Kambo, Xlapac, Kabah and Uxmal. At that time, I met a group of Archeology students. They come from some university in USA. Most of this American students asked me questions about my country, such as whether everyone uses drugs in Colombia, whether I knew Pablo Escobar whether the Colombian government is involved with the mafia and whether drugs are easy to get in my city. I felt like a criminal. If Archeology students had the opportunity to take courses about Colombian culture and archeology, they would learn a lot about its culture, archeology, history, people and traditions. They would learn Colombia is not just about drugs. By studying in Colombia, students can learn that there are only a few countries that can boast about the variety of natural and cultural resources available and Colombia is one of them. In fact, there are white sandy beaches to enjoy in the beautiful Caribbean San Andres Island, elevated snow capped mountains for people who like climbing mountains, exotic animals and lush vegetation for nature lovers in the Amazon’s jungle, peaceful colonial style villages, such as, Villa de Leyva and Cartagena, where one can learn about people and their cultures and historical archeological places like San Agustin and Tierradentro, where archeologists could learn interesting information about the past. Moreover, archeology students can learn many things with reference to the Colombian people, such as, traditions, religions, languages, and ancient Indian tribes.

14. Features - Colombian Dance Troupe A Symbol Of Latin Diversity
By teaching and performing Latin American dances for the North American public,she hopes the colombian culture she shares will nurture the relationship
Volume 134, Issue 3
Colombian dance troupe a symbol of Latin diversity By April McGill
The Colombian Ethnic Dance Ensemble educates and entertains with their rhythmic displays of elegant and mystic motion. T he city's diverse Latino cultures, blended together to create its "mestizo," or mixed people population, includes many Central and South American indigenous cultures.
Because California is bordered by Mexico, people perceive it as the only Latino culture represented here through art and music.
Director and choreographer Beatriz Restrepo's traditional dance teachings create awareness of her Bogota, Colombia homeland among the communities of San Francisco. By teaching and performing Latin American dances for the North American public, she hopes the Colombian culture she shares will nurture the relationship between different human cultures with a professional artistic approach. "We are not just immigrants," Restrepo said.
Restrepo created Colombian Ethnic Dance Ensemble (CEDE) in 1996 with manager Beat Rettenmund, and members of the local Colombian and wider Latino community.
Restrepo's vision of a local Colombian dance group arose when she noted the absence of traditional dance, music or art that represented Colombia. "I wanted it to have a strong voice for my culture and show that there is not just terror in Colombia," Restrepo said. "It is a beautiful country."Resprepo first expressed her gift for dance at age six with her performance in the play Rin Rin Argucuajo by South American children's writer, Rafael Pombo. "In this play I had my first sense of art," she said with a smile on her face as she reminisced about her innocent Colombian girlhood. "I knew I was going to do this."

The Miami Herald
September 30, 2001 Araujo, ex-Colombian culture minister, slain By JARED KOTLER
Associated Press Writer BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) Former Culture Minister Consuelo Araujo, the wife of Colombia's inspector-general, has been found shot to death, six days after being kidnapped by leftist rebels, family members said Sunday. The body of the 62-year-old Araujo was found near the northern town of Valledupar. President Andres Pastrana called the family Saturday night to let them known the body had been discovered, said a family member who did not want to be identified for security reasons. The killing of the high-profile figure puts in jeopardy peace talks that President Andres Pastrana initiated three years ago with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of
Colombia, or FARC. While the talks have produced few results, the rebels have been accused of abuses including kidnappings, extortion, murder and drug trafficking. Araujo, a popular figure, was Pastrana's culture minister and the wife of Inspector-General Edgardo Mayo, who leads a watchdog branch in charge investigations of
government officials.
