Then I came across this hard-copy article in El Tiempo from March of last year: América Latina, territorio infiel.The article says that not only does greater Latin America cheat a lot, but Colombia leads the region.When Venezuela, Ecuador and Cundinamarca came to exist as independent states, the former Department of Cundinamarca adopted the name "Republic of New Granada".New Granada officially changed its name in 1858 to the Granadine Confederation.After reading this article, I started thinking about the dealings I’ve had with Colombian women, and I think a majority had boyfriends.
Vestiges indicate that there was also early occupation in the regions of El Abra and Tequendama in Cundinamarca.
The article isn’t as interesting as the statistics, and unfortunately the El Tiempo archive online doesn’t include those.
So here are my picks, plus screenshots of the hard copy so you can see them all.
What is now Colombia and Panama emerged as the Republic of New Granada.
The new nation experimented with federalism as the Granadine Confederation (1858), and then the United States of Colombia (1863), before the Republic of Colombia was finally declared in 1886. Since the 1960s, the country has suffered from an asymmetric low-intensity armed conflict, which escalated in the 1990s but then decreased from 2005 onward.
