Ellen: So you’ve been married for 14 years to your wife. She’s a beautiful woman. Where did you meet?
Colin: We met in Colombia. We met in Cartagena, which is a staggeringly beautiful city, and full of staggeringly beautiful people. I was on the steps of a church, a very old church in the plaza in this ancient city. And I saw her coming through the crowd and that was it. It was a bolt to the heart.
Ellen: Really? And then you just walked over and started talking to her?
Colin: No, I didn’t move. I couldn’t move. And I realized with trepidation that she was coming closer. I was half hoping that she wouldn’t come my way because I didn’t think I could cope. But, she shook hands and she had this completely guileless air about her. She had no airs or graces. She shook hands with the people around her, and I was smitten. And she dates it from that moment too, when we actually did shake hands.
