    There you go man!!!
    You just mixed the two cities mentioned...

    The first two pics are from Ana Sofía Henao, she's from Medellín.
    The third one is from Sofía Vergara, from Barranquilla (she's known in the US anyway).

    With sites like these, I'd be mucho proud to be Colombian too!







    All hail Colombian women! The second most beautiful in the world (after Brazilian garotas!)

    Well, I cannot say anything about that pics, as I don't know Barranquilla, but they look cool!!!!
    ok ok, maybe I recognize the Airport and the Stadium, but nothing more.

    BTW: For those that don't know, today (July 20th) is the Independence day here in Colombia.

    BTW2: What is written below the flag and shield is the Colombian Anthem.

    BTW3: My name is also Andrés, just that my surname is Ramírez.

    Gracias, Andrés!!!

    I'll also say that I'm 1000% proud to be a Colombian, the most resilient nation on earth. So much crap going on there, and still nothing put us down!!!

    VIVA COLOMBIA, HIJUEPUTAS!!!





    Coro:
    ¡Oh gloria inmarcesible!
    ¡Oh júbilo inmortal!
    En surcos de dolores
    El bien germina ya
    I
    Ceso la horrible noche!
    la libertad sublime
    derrama las auroras
    de su invencible luz.
    La humanidad entera,
    que entre cadenas gime,
    comprende las palabras
    del que murió en la cruz.

    II
    Independencia grita
    el mundo americano;
    se baña en sangre de héroes
    la tierra de Colón.
    Pero este gran principio:
    "el Rey no es soberano"
    resuena y los que sufren
    bendicen su pasión.

    III
    Del Orinoco el cauce
    se colma de despojos;
    de sangre y llanto un río
    se mira allí correr.
    En Bárbula no saben
    las almas ni los ojos
    si admiración o espanto
    sentir o padecer.

    IV
    A orillas del Caribe
    hambriento un pueblo lucha
    Horrores prefiriendo
    a pérfida salud.
    ¡Oh, sí! de Cartagena
    la abnegación es mucha,
    y escombros de la muerte
    desprecia su virtud.

    V
    De Boyacá en los campos
    el genio de la gloria
    con cada espiga un héroe
    invicto coronó.
    Soldados sin coraza
    ganaron la victoria;
    su varonil aliento
    de escudo les sirvió.

    VI
    Bolívar cruza el Ande
    que riegan dos océanos,
    espadas cual centellas
    fulguran en Junín.
    Centauros indomables
    descienden a los llanos,
    y empieza a presentirse
    de la epopeya el fin.

    VII
    La trompa victoriosa
    en Ayacucho truena,
    que en cada triunfo crece
    su formidable són.
    En su expansivo empuje
    la libertad se estrena,
    del cielo americano
    formando un pabellón.

    VIII
    La virgen sus cabellos
    arranca en agonía
    y de su amor viuda
    los cuelga del ciprés.
    Lamenta su esperanza
    que cubre loza fría,
    pero glorioso orgullo
    circunda su alba tez.

    IX
    La patria así se forma
    termópilas brotando;
    constelación de cíclopes
    su noche iluminó.
    La flor estremecida
    mortal el viento hallando,
    debajo los laureles
    seguridad buscó.

    X
    Mas no es completa gloria
    vencer en la batalla,
    que el brazo que combate
    lo anima la verdad.
    La independencia sola
    el gran clamor no acalla;
    si el sol alumbra a todos,
    justicia es libertad.

    XI
    Del hombre los derechos
    Nariño predicando,
    el alma de la lucha
    profético enseñó.
    Ricaurte en San Mateo
    en átomos volando,
    "deber antes que vida"
    con llamas escribió.

    And now, pics from my bit of Paradise on Earth: Barranquilla

    There were big celebrations here despite the war going on, this year the defence ministerium began encouraging people to show flags and stuff, so this year it was bigger than the others...

    For the people which doesn't know, the pics are all from Medellín, our city (Andrés Duque's, ACES A320's and mine), from left to right and up-down:

    -El Metro de Medellín (The only massive transportation system of its kind in Colombia, and one of the safest in the world)

    -El Edificio Inteligente (Intelligent Building) a very modern and efficient building built in the late 90s, EPM's headquarters are there.

    -Inside Jose Maria Córdova intl Airport terminal, SKRG.

    -A sight of Olaya Herrera regional airport, SKMD from the hills. You could kinda see why it is called "The Colombian Kai-Tak", it's dangerous, but challenging as well. As you can see is almost in downtown, thats why the kinda "small" accidents happened lately have sounded so loud.
    You should see an aircraft doing the approach pattern to this airport over the city, it's spectacular (and only 50 pax aircraft fly into SKMD, before SKRG was built, even 747s landed there).

    -El Pueblito Paisa (Paisa little village), it's a demonstration of how the old villages of our region are, in the middle of the city.

    -A Demonstration of FAC (Fuerza Aérea Colombiana, Colombian Air Force)

    Happy Independance Day! Read and Post!

    Just wanted to wish to all my colombian fellows a happy independance (if you can call it so....because we still in a freaking civil war that does not let us live free. Always afraid if we are going to come back from going to the store to buy a damn gallon of milk that is more expensive than MARIHUANA! What the hell is going on in our country?)

    Anyways.....Happy in-Dependence Day.

    Proud to be a Colombian no matter what.

    Andres Duque
