Columbia is a university in NYC and is very close to the Atlantic Ocean. The country is spelled Colombia. No U. This is not an ordinary nitpick, as my Spanish Literature prof (we read the stuff in English, though, no Spanish ability required) was an expert on Panama and Colombia, and his very first words to us on the first day of class were, "Colombia does NOT, NOT, NOT have a U in it."
