RE: How to travel to Colombia and not make stupid tourist mistakes
So this is only tangentially connected to the topic but you reminded me of something I've been wondering for quite a bit. How active is the FARC these days? Last I'd come across news it seemed the government wasn't keeping its end of the bargain and some were starting to take up arms again.
Most of what I know of Columbia comes from studying groups like FARC, ELN, and AUC, this was a nice (and rather different) perspective on the country. Gonna have to remember the papaya doctrine!
