Medellin has got to be one of my favorite cities. I could with absolutely no doubt, happily live here.
That’s kind of what we are doing now, I guess. We’ve been here for a week as of today and aren’t in any hurry to leave. We will soon – we’ve actually planned it – so no danger of getting completely sucked in.
We fall behind on the blog sometimes – we drove through the mountains to get here from Honda a week ago. It was a long, fun day’s drive that ended with a 1000 meter white-knuckled descent into Medellin. Good thing we got the brakes fixed.
To catch up since then, here’s my week’s observations…
Medellin is just a great place. Friendly people, pleasant weather, beautiful setting, fun stuff to do, great food, good museums, fun things for kids, great shopping, easily available U.S. college football on giant TV screens, an abundance of interesting modern architecture, developing hip international scene, great green spaces, a metro system, live music!, sushi!, avocados the size of your head, interesting historical stuff… And, if you live here you get to be a Paisa!
There you go, we’re all caught up.
