Join with me a journey of discovery to the capital of Guaviare, a department that due to its geographical position has been linked to different processes of colonization of peasants and settlers who, seduced by the natural abundance and its possibilities of exploitation, reached the territory and marked mostly violent periods, one of them and the best known, cocaine.
