What are the best books, movies, music and food from Colombia and Venezuela. Vote for those that got under your skin and made you feel like a local.

I would recommend Gabriel Garcia Marquez's The General in His Labyrinth, about the last days of Liberator Simon Bolivar in Colombia. It really gives you a feeling for the country and its people.

I would highly recommend a book called Throwing Stones at the Moon. It's a series of narratives by Colombians who have been affected by the violence in the country. Definitely gives you an inside perspective on the damage that's been done. Amazon has it in paperbook or for the kindle.
