Home Geography

I live in a 1 floor apartment with my mother, in a nice and safe neighborhood called Rosales in Bogota, surrounded by big trees and a mountain stream. It is 2 blocks walking down the school. 

Colombia has a lot in common with other Central and South American countries because almost all of this countries have a great variety of fruits, coffee,flowers,and jungles. Also there is Soccer that every country plays and many other things that central and south america have in common because they are closer than the other countries. The majority of countries speak spanish and many people are catholic. 

The majority of south america had been colonized by Spain and their culture can be seen in Colombia, they gave us the lenguage that's Spanish, some types of food, the religion and tradition. Many visitors have been coming more and more to Colombia so some of their culture has stayed here.

One of the most influencive things is that Colombia has a constant war against "Las Farc" and they are kidnapping and taking farmers into the city with nothing to live and they have to stay in the streets, and thats a failure for our economy. Also we are contaminating our environment by leaving trash in the floor and the gas of the cars is affecting the ozone layer. And very few people are willing to change it.
