Cartagena women are respectable and you cannot generalize as if the city were filled with prostitutes.
Mayor Campo Elias Terán of Cartagena, Colombia • Expressing his dismay at the Western media’s fixation on the involvement of prostitution in the recent Secret Service scandal. Many residents have grown tired of American depictions of their city, a colonially-inspired city of luxury surrounded by slums, as a town where prostitutes wander every street. Regional travel company Spirit Airlines has also come under fire for a new marketing campaign featuring men in Secret Service-esque costumes, scantily clad women, and the slogan “Upfront payment is required.” Colombians are also confused by the lack of discussion regarding President Obama’s safety due to the presence of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), one of the longest-running Marxist insurgencies in history. source(via • follow)
