When God started creating the world he put gold into South Africa. Finding he had some left over he gave it to Colombia. Brazil received emeralds and tropical fruits. Again, God had some left over and gave them to Colombia. He put coal into Appalachia. Colombia got the leftovers. The Middle East got pots full of oil and the remainder was poured into Colombia. Flowers went to the South Pacific islands but there were some of these left over too, so God gave them to Colombia.. along with some surplus minerals including iron and nickel.

"Wait a minute," exclaimed a watching angel. "Do you realise that you're making Colombia one of the most powerful nations on the planet?"

"Yes," replied God, "but don't worry. I haven't given them their politics yet."

I'll trade you a bucket of coal for a used 19th-century Colombian politician and that woman's smile.

You seem to be having such an awesome trip!

Did you leave room in your budget for your entourage? Surely you need someone to help you carry stuff and keep your papers organized.
