Colombia’s everyday life

Skip all other sightseeing, Colombian people watching can be quite interesting by itself!

I had a great opportunity to see the authentic life of the locals and capture some of the moments for you, my reader.

Here is my photo essay of simple Colombian people and their everyday life:

What you saw from these pictures is of course just a little part of what you will see when you visit Colombia yourself. However, I hope you could still see how incredibly warm hearted these people are – smiling, enjoying their life while being busy with everyday’s affairs.

I really enjoyed being a photographer for you! 🙂

Have you been to Colombia? What are your thoughts after seeing all these pictures?

    I habe been in Bogotá several times and if i had a chance i would live there and get married with a Colombian woman they are sinply bestiful and the people is amazingly friendly.
    Dont forget that Bogota id the only one airport that smell coffee as soon as you are inside.

    Do you travel by yourself? Did you feel safe? I’m a single girl thinking of going to Columbia for 2 weeks in March.

      I did not travel by myself, but i think i would feel safe if i would in the places i have been to. just use common sense and it will be fine
