La mirada del viajero

Me acabo de encontrar con Colombia Guide, una antiquísima guía de viajes por Colombia hecha principalmente por extranjeros. Desde mi punto de vista es sencillamente una mina de oro, como las mil y un crónicas de viajeros del siglo XIX que tan bien explotan mis colegas historiadores.

Con tanta vaina acerca de esa utopía que es «nuestra verdadera identidad» y los chorros de chauvinismo con aquello de «la cara positiva que Colombia le da al mundo», qué mejor que esta colección de impresiones para darnos cuenta de lo que normalmente pasa inadvertido aunque resulte sumamente curioso y verdaderamente único. Uno dificilmente sabe qué o quién es hasta que le dicen.

Por ejemplo, ¿por qué no podemos reconocer nunca que estamos borrachos? También hay un pequeño tratado sobre la papaya y, cómo no, el diccionario actualizado de colombianismos —ojo a la definición de vaina.

    1. Qué buena bitácora de extranjeros ha encontrado. Una deliciosa reliquia.

    2. Esta es la mejor forma de ver otro lado de este país: a través de los deschavetados ojos de otros deschavetados.

    3. ¡Eso era lo que faltaba en su Blog! Esa simple frase:
    ¿Por qué no podemos reconocer nunca que estamos borrachos?
    Simplemente… sin palabras.

    Cuero, aleta, guiso me parece que estan su definicion.
    Porq no esta culiar? se que es bastante desagradable la palabreja, pero se usa intensivamente. Tambien falta Colino, q suele variar su significado dependiendo de la region.
    Buenisima la definicion de vaina.. anoche intentaba explicarsela a una gringa, justamente…

  5. Kamilo Klauss dijo:

    ¡Que vaina!, ¿no?

  6. mundo chacal dijo:

    que maricas, complicarse con estas vainas! deberían ir a tirar con cueros. o dejar de joder! No Juglar, que post tan quiso, que boleta. ya se las vino a dar de avión, por pasarse de añoñi? pero no se nos vaya alebrestar too bien.

  9. Isis dijo:

    Excelente el descubrimiento de la palabra “birra” y aquello de “to give papaya” debe sonar muy bien. Merece un exámen exhaustivo.

  10. Juan Diego dijo:

    Me encanto esto, sobre todo como detallan las tradiciones y la papaya. Uno se descuida y termina en National Geographic.

    Cambios en Incoterms
    Muchas asociaciones y grupos están realizando cambios para así mismo concienciar
    la estabilidad de los usuarios que se queden, sigue leyendo y entérate
    de cosas nuevas.
    En la Cámara de Comercio Internacional (CCI) ya se han comenzado a redactar los nuevos Incoterms para el año 2020, normativa que entrará en vigencia para la siguiente
    década, destituyendo las del 2010 que son las que actualmente se encuentran vigentes.

    Principales cambios
    Ya se han dado a conocer algunas de las cosas que cambiarán a partir del próximo
    año. Cabe destacar que se trata de la primera vez en la que
    representantes de Australia y de China se hacen presentes en estas reuniones dominadas por países europeos.

    Entre los cambios más destacables están:
    Se elimina de Incoterms EXW y DDP, esto se debe a que
    se trata de empresas destinadas a operaciones domésticas.

    Se elimina FAS del Incoterm, pues su uso ha demostrado ser muy
    limitado durante la década actual.
    Se desdobla FCA en dos Incoterms, dado que se ha convertido en una de
    las opciones más versátiles y utilizadas.

    De esta manera se prevé la especialización de cada una de
    las Incoterms.
    En el caso de transporte marítimo, las encargadas
    serán FOB y CIF, para dar respuesta al envío en contenedores, que representan casi un 80% de todas las transacciones en el mercado.

    Se crea CNI, nuevo Incoterm a fin de lograr solventar los cabos sueltos que han quedado entre FCA y CFR/CIF,
    la cual incluirá el valor del seguro internacional pero no así el costo del flete.

    DDP también pasa a ser dos Incoterms, el DTP (Delivered at Terminal Paid) que se
    encarga de la mercancía al ser entregada en una terminal y la DPP (Delivered at Place Paid) cuando se
    entrega en algún lugar que no funcione como una terminal de transportes.

    Otros cambios
    Cambios importantes también se darán en relación con la seguridad en el transporte, trayendo una nueva normativa en cuanto a
    los tipos de seguro de transporte que entrará en vigencia en 2020.
