This presentation will share information about the many faces of the South American country of Colombia. Twice the size of France and a mini-earth unto itself, Colombia has two oceanic coasts, three spines of the Andes, the Amazon Rainforest, desert, Caribbean islands, and even snowcapped mountains and glaciers.
Among the most biodiverse nations on earth and with an array of cultures from Indigenous to Afrocolombian to Spanish descendant, Colombia offers an incredible variety of opportunities for the interested traveler or academic.
