World Footprints is excited to take you on a journey through Colombia, South America where “The Only Risk is Wanting to Stay”.  Colombia was the featured country in th 2011 Smithsonian Folklife Festival and World Footprints visited the country and met with some of the artisans and other participants who traveled to Washington, DC.  Festival visitors had an opportunity to experience Colombia in a personal way and if you missed the Festival you can experience Colombia through today's show. 

When some think of Colombia they reflect on Colombia's dark history with drug cartels and corruption.  However, we saw a very colorful face of this country--one that reflected it's rich cultural heritage and warmth of the communities we visited.  The memories we left with included the wonderful food, gracious hospitality, architectural and natural beauty.  We fell in love with Colombia and we hope that you will also be inspired to visit the country with an open mind and open heart.
