The Colombia most people know is of the drug scandals and political violence enveloping the country. However, when García Márquez wrote his novel, he changed the mindset of people, especially non-Hispanics, regarding his country. Examining the setting of the various episodes in the stories, García Márquez mostly describes places along the Caribbean shore and Colombian north coast. Much focus is given in the description of Caribbean Colombia, its landscape and people. Other notable places examined in this chapter include Cartagena, Barranquilla, and Santa Marta.
