Colombia

I live in the capital of Colombia, Bogota. Bogota is a big city surrounded by mountains, located in the the central mountain range. At the farmside near Bogota there are many farmers who plant potatoes that are used for the tipical foods, Ajiaco, Sancocho and other delicios soups. Bogota is located 04º 38' N and 74º 05' W. Colombia it is boredered to the northweast by Panama, to the east by Venezuela and Brazil, to the south by Ecuador and Peru and it shares maritime limits with Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, Jamaica, Dominican Republic and Haiti. Colombia has in common with many of the countries in South America that its main language is Spanish, such as Venezuela, Chile, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay, Uruguay and Argentina, In Central America there are also many Spanish-speaking countries such as Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama.  I think many of these countries have there languaje in common because of the Spanish that came here to found many of these countries. Long ago the only living people in what now is colombia were the indians who had their own language, and their own way to live, when the spanish came they brought there own ideas of many things the indians didint know.  Colombias main culture is the farming part, it has been changing with time and the cities have been growing enough to make the people have the need to adapt.
