    Well I'm half Colombian

    and half white. I love how affectionate and loving Colombians are. Anytime there are visitors, the greeting can take a while, since the custom is hugs and kisses from everybody to everybody. Also, it's Colombian, not Columbian. I did visit Colombia once. Bogota, to be exact...
