What is Rolo Paisa?

Rolo Paisa is a cartoon strip that seeks to examine the daily life of Colombia's 47 million people. Through the eyes of a middle class family in Bogota, the Moras, we see what it's like to live in Colombia. We look at the challenges and problems of the Colombian people. We consider what it means to be Colombian. And finally we take a provocative look at what is happening in Bogota and Medellin, Colombia's major cities, and at a national level as well.

Rolo Paisa is the story of a rolo (resident of Bogota), Francisco Mora, who meets and falls in love with a paisa (resident of Medellin), while they are studying at the Universidad Nacional in Bogota. Francisco receives an accounting degree, while Marta receives a degree in education. After graduation, they get married. They live in the Chaperias neighborhood of Bogota and have two children, Jesus, who also studies in the Universidad Nacional, and Liliana, who studies in grade school.

With a touch of humor, David Unsworth writes and draws Rolo Paisa every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, in both Spanish and English. In addition to seeking to entertain Colombians, Rolo Paisa also has the purpose of providing a source of quality information and analysis about Colombia to the English-speaking world; more than anything so that those outside of Colombia come to realize that Colombia is much more than the typical stereotypes.

David Unsworth is also the founder of the websites Visit Colombia, for luxury travelers, Colombia Backpacking, for backpackers, and Latin America Update, a news and commentary site in English, that primarily deals with Latin American politics, economics, and society.
