It didn’t take Fabian a long time to realize the Diversity in his country, he tells us that just traveling from Bogotá to Medellín, cities about 260 miles away from each other, every single person is very different.

He claims that in Colombia they have the influence of so many different cultures (Afro-Colombians, Criollos, Romas, Sephardic Jews, Germanics…), and that you can see their influence in everything, the food, the music and dances, the architecture…
