Stereotypes Colombians Can’t Stand Hearing

Colombia has been declared “the happiest country in the world” on several occasions. But there are certainly plenty of things that make us Colombianos less than happy, like being asked if we carry coke at all times ?. Wanna see Colombianos smile again? Then stay clear of these stereotypes…
