Bogota and Medellin

May 13, 2013

 

The realization that this country is different from the rest of South America comes instantly.  The food is unique, the colors are vibrant, and the salsa is EVERYWHERE. I spent hours just wandering the old city  of Bogota and hiking up to the church of Monserrate. However, the highlight was spending the day at a friends ranch house in the hills...where I rode a horse for my first time. A truly unforgettable day galloping around the countryside. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hopped up north to spend the weekend in Medellin. A weekend in Medellin isn't very conducive to picture taking. I ate far too much by day, and stayed up far too late by night. The city's new revival is incredible - beautiful, open, city-unifying architecture all connected by a clean/efficient metro system. Medellin is a must-see for any South American travel.
