Medellin is a proper, fairly large city situated in the valley between two mountain ranges. It is very picturesque despite the land being completely covered in homes and apartments. It has a great energy to it, very young and vibrant and they have quite a few things to do there. The temperature wasn’t quite what I had been used to… Now you have to bear in mind that until now I had been used to and living in tropical, Caribbean temperatures so anything less than 78 Fahrenheit (about 25.6 Celsius) I considered COLD!!
I stayed in Medellin for several days simply walking the streets, taking the tram up to the top of one side of the valley and going to their various museums, which included a science and natural history museum. It was a big city like many others, which really doesn’t appeal to me in any huge way other than it being nice to have the conveniences of a big city. But definitely worth a visit just to see the way the city is structured!
I have to admit really that after the craziness of actually getting there and getting settled there, every other day spent there was quite dull in comparison! Sorry, no crazy stories of actually staying in Medellin!! So to keep this post somewhat interesting, below at least are some pictures! Several from the bus ride over, and several more of Medellin itself. Some of the pictures taken from the tram seem foggy. That’s due to the glass of the tram, not from any pollution from the city:)
