It's very common for people from Boyacá and Cundinamarca to quickly acquire a new accent... Check Fabio Parra interviews, or even Quintana's. On the other hand, people from Antioquia more or less keep their accent for longer time. William Alvarez (tennis player and Spanish Armada coach) could be the best example, but also Santiago Botero. Not to mention Urán, Henao among others.The Barb said:I have a random question for some of the Spanish speakers out there:
My Colombian girlfriend was bemused by Lopez’s post-race interview today. She said he was speaking with a distinctly Spanish accent, totally unlike the rural Boyaca accent he normally has and which he spoke in when interviewed just a few days ago. Did anyone else notice this?
I am conscious that linguists say the faster you pick up an accent in a new country is indicative of how content you feel in that country, but to acquire an accent in a few days seem unusually fast.
