It’s Monday, and there’s sure to be some small-talk floating around the office; and, being English, it’s probably talk about the weather. If you were in Colombia however, talk of the weather could be a decidedly more…interesting.
You might know by now that Colombia is a megadiverse country – one of only 17 in the world (and that might, or might not have something to do with us harping on about that amazing fact). Part of what makes Colombia’s ecosystem so diverse, so habitable and so varied, is the unique climates that operate within the country.
Climates. Plural. From the permanent ice and snow zones in the Nevado Del Ruiz, to the paradisiacal beaches bathed in sunshine on the Caribbean coast; from verdant, tropical savannahs, to barren deserts flooded with sunshine; from the lush vegetation and thick air of the Amazonian jungles, to the thin, dry airs atop the peaks of the Andes. Colombia brings new meaning to the phrase “whatever the weather”.
That sure makes an exciting change from the English climate, doesn’t it? Imagine swapping rain, rain, and some more rain (with intermittent bursts of sunshine), for every type of weather imaginable. Now it’s just about deciding what to pack…
