The place where I literally felt a strong culture influence was the historic centre La candelaria. Constantly changing climate to beautiful sceneries is what makes it special. I could never get over the cultural shocks I experienced meanwhile really adapting to the situation and respecting it the same time. I tried to carry myself like a normal Colombia Chico because you don’t want to( Dar papayas) show them that you are a foreigner(gringo) and that too across seven seas. However when with my friends coming to my hotel walking we forgot the route, we did not hesitate asking street vendors the directions. There welcoming nature is something you don’t see everywhere.
