Somehow, as mentioned above, too many people came here from different places of the world, and even inhabited here since long time ago, that fact would affect too many aspects of Colombian lifestyle, being the cuisine one of them.

** Bolívar: Named after [[RedBaron the Liberator]], [[{{Badass}} Simón Bolívar]], this Department is famous for its capital: Cartagena de Indias, or La Heroica, which is a beach paradise (or its remnants --that's a serious TearJerker for some of us.) and has some of the best touristic places you can ever visit. Cartagena became famous for a convention (The Americas' Summit) which uncovered some serious situations [[RuleofCautiousEditingJudgement between the Secret Service and a young girl. And we'll leave it at that.]]. But this is not exclusive for modern times. As you can see, Cartagena was called "La Heroica"[[note]]Means "Heroic City"[[/note]] because had to fight two sieges: one in 1741 against Vernon (under the command of notorious Badass [[HandicappedBadass Blas de Lezo]]) and another one, in 1815 against the Spaniards. In the case that Cartagena fell to one of these sieges, Colombia would have never existed.

** Caquetá: One of the main Departments of this Region, Caquetá has industries like wood and rubber as its main means of subsistance, and also benefits from the eco-tourism. Also, has its share of violence and its mainly famous for having the original Distension Zone in the municipality of San Vicente del Caguán (Ask ANY Colombian about this and there's a sure Flame War, so this troper will apply the RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement on this one.)

* Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll: just known as {{Shakira}} by most people, you'll have almost certainly heard one of her songs. Actually a quarter Lebanese (which somewhat explains the [[BellyDancer belly-dancing]]).
