"Colombia is home to how many species of birds?"

How am I supposed to know that?

I'm not a biologist, I have no idea how many species of birds there are here in Brazil!

Well, I took a 6/10

But I think I was correct in the really relevant questions.

Not bad, I got 7/10 and I've got Colombian heritage - I feel ashamed now, although as you said how on earth am I supposed to know how much Sofia Vergara earns a year!

I look forward to the next LatAm countries they're going to start quizzing on...

6/10

To tell you the truth, I'm a bit disappointed with myself. I thought I knew more of Colombia that I actually do

My wife is Colombian and I got a 7/10. But really, instead of questions about the history, politics, economy, we get questions about Shakira and Sophia V?


When they do Bolivia, they'll ask us whether Evo Morales wears boxers or briefs (probably neither).

I got 5/10 and I guessed a couple of answers.

I didn't realize Colombia had such a massive earthquake back in the 80s. 23,000 dead?

Volcanic eruption, Nevado de Ruiz Vulcan. I think that's the reason the 1986 FIFA World Cup went to Mexico instead.
