Rooting for Colombia World Cup 2014
I’m not a soccer fan at all but one of the most exciting reasons to follow the World Cup is the chance to root for any country around the world you want. For me, rooting for countries I’ve traveled to is the most fun, and to see some of my favorite countries climb the charts this year has been an absolute thrill. Particularly, when Colombia is doing so well. Tomorrow will surely be a hair-raising event.
I’ve shared numerous chants for Colombia throughout this World Cup and with each celebration, people continue to ask me “Are you Colombian?” Sadly, I am not, but I have a passion for Colombia given my trip to Bogota back in 2011. With the World Cup championship at stake, I enjoy taking the opportunity to talk with people about why Colombia is so great and the experiences I had traveling through Bogota and near-by cities.
