Colombia, not Columbia

My acquaintance in Bogota kindly corrected my wrong spelling of his country in my previous post. It is Colombia.It is not Columbia (in which I spelled).

There has been a campaign going on in Colombia to let the world know the correct spelling of the country. http://huffingtonpost.com/2013/02/22/its-colombia-not-columbia-a-social-media-campaign-changing-the-image-of-a-country_n_2743909.html

Santiago, thank you very much.
