From the lush green coffee fields of Salento, to the interesting city of Medellin.. Also commonly referred to as medi-yin or medi-gin . Now this city has a hidden side, a history of murder, drugs and scandal. But today things have changed and we enjoyed a hassle free time roaming the streets, eating good food, drinking in the cool bars and basking in the good weather. The coolest area by far is Zona Rosa – great vibe with bustling bars and restaurants.
We stopped for lunch at a local joint near the markets. Always a great vibe at these types of places, perfect for people watching 🙂 my lunch was a bit boring- egg salad as choices were limited, but the guys enjoyed their chicken.
A fun thing we did was take the Metrocable which gave us an awesome view of the city and forests. It was way longer than we expected and at the end there were awesome little markets where tried every possible type of market food.
It was time to say farewells to the boys, great fun to travel with! Back to being me and Josh, which isn’t that bad 😉 we went on the Pablo Escobar tour hosted by Pablo’s brother, and right hand man, Roberto (here he is with us, and there he is in the wanted sign,) they were the head of Columbias infamous Medellin drug cartel
Off to the Caribbean coast now, rushing to take a bus! Adios amigo
