No they don't. In fact one of the beauties of Colombia is its variety, in terms of nature and everything including type of women.
One might argue that a certain type of apperance is more prevalent in each area (e.g. calenas, costenas, paisas, rollas (ugh) and you name it often have certain similarities) but even this is not a proper statement.

However, the real beauty of Colombians is within their warm and genuinely friendly attitude. Great country - even better inhabitants!

besides that, shakira is half-lebanese/italian or something like that.

was in bogota and girardot a few weeks ago.

regarding the relative safety of bogota, the friends i stayed with wouldn't let me walk to a supermarket that was a few blocks away by myself at night. granted, i felt they were being overly protective, they insisted. fwiw - this was in a "good" neighborhood.

make sure to get yourself an arepa con queso, or two.

hit me up if you want some tips

i came to medellin last june and fell in love, currently living here with two broads.
when the women here arent bending over backwards to help you - they're bending over forwards.

medellin - me encanta.

I thought Bogota was the best in terms of nightlife in Colombia? or no? I figured that since the plane lands in Bogota, I might as well hang out there for a few weeks or a month, then keep on moving around SA.

I noticed you are backpacking, what trails are you hiking on? Have you brought the correct gear for the weather conditions?

He's probably not doing trails. It seems like he's talking about backpacking in the "backpacking Europe" sense. Hostels, buses, hitching rides, etc. to see the place on the cheap.
