- COLOMBIA is the country of colours, of the expression of nature, of the fire of its land and the force of its jungle. From the Santa Marta mountain range, to the colonial and Caribbean art of Cartagena, to the humidity of the coffee-growing area, to the eternal spring of Medellin and to the movement of Cali, life in this beautiful country is lived with intensity.
Marked by a history of conflict, from 1830 to the beginning of the 20th century, the country had nine national civil wars, 14 local ones and two with Ecuador, suffered three military pronouncements and had 11 constitutions. Unfortunately, the 20th century was not better, there were coups d'état and bipartisan violence, and then various guerrilla and paramilitary groups emerged, all of which were linked to the great scourge of drug trafficking.
The fact is that the greatest example of the corruption of capitalism is reflected in man's use of the medicine offered by mother earth, coca. The transformation and adulteration of its use to create a weapon of destruction charged with shadow, darkness and violence. -
