From an early age Fabián has realized the diversity in his country; he tells us that just by traveling from Bogotá to Medellín, cities about 260 miles away from each other, you will have completely different experiences.
He claims that in Colombia they have the influence of so many different cultures (such as Afro-Colombians, Criollos, Romas, Sephardic Jews, and Germans), and that you can see these influences in everything from the food to the music and dances to the architecture.
In Fabián’s opinion, travelers coming to Colombia today will get a more authentic vision of the country because the people are much more open and willing to share their country than before.
