SOCIAL HINTS
------------
SOCIAL LIFE IS INFORMAL. COLUMBIANS ENJOY TO CHAT ABOUT
SPORT AND THE COUNTRYSIDE. ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR SPORTS
IN COLOMBIA IS BULLFIGHTING. NORMAL COURTESIES SHOULD BE
OBSERVED. IT IS CUSTOMARY TO OFFER GUESTS BLACK COLOMBIAN
COFFEE, WELL SUGARED, CALLED TINTO. SPANISH STYLE AND
CULTURE CAN STILL BE SEEN IN PARTS OF THE COUNTRY, ALTHOUGH
IN BOGOTA, NORTH AMERICAN ATTITUDES AND CLOTHES ARE BECOMING
PREVALENT. SMOKING IS PROHIBITED IN THEATRES AND CINEMAS.

BUSINESS HINTS
--------------
BUSINESS IS CONDUCTED IN A FORMAL MANNER. A HANDSHAKE IS
THE CUSTOMARY GREETING. BETWEEN WOMEN, CLASPING FOREARMS,
IS QUITE COMMON. IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT YOU WEAR A BUSINESS
SUIT IN BOGOTA, WHILE IN OTHER TOWNS OR CITIES IT IS CUSTOM
TO WEAR A TROPICAL JACKET. COFFEE IS ALWAYS OFFERED AT THE
BEGINNING OF MEETINGS, AND IS CONSIDERED IMPOLITE IF YOU
REFUSE. ENGLISH IS WIDELY UNDERSTOOD IN MANY BUSINESS CIRCLES.
A COMMAND OF SPANISH IS ALWAYS APPRECIATED.
