A paisa (coffee region) and a rola (Bogotá) are not the same kind of Colombian. Don’t make this lethal mistake.
And make every word in your homework is spelled correctly.
Please don’t ever say Columbia when referring to her home country. She’ll give you the death stare.
Learn your steps.
Vallenato, salsa, porro and merengue will happen at any given time. Be prepared.
You really want to earn her heart? Enter through her stomach.

As a matter of fact, refrain from even mentioning the show.
Remove the word “parce” from your vocabulary. Just delete it.
You’d lose major points.

Colombian mamás put a lot of time into looking fantásticas… And they love it when you notice.
Her arepas should be your favorite arepas.
Even if you don’t like arepas. You like hers.
School yourself on things that matter to her.
Like novelas colombianas, of course, such as “Las hermanitas calle,” “La niña,” “Diomedes,” “Betty la fea,” “Café con aroma de mujer.” You’ll be chatting it up with her in no time.
But above all, love Colombia.
