Medellin

Medellin is the only city in Colombia that has a ”subway”. It is also the hometown of the infamous Pablo Escobar, not that he has left any kind of mark on the city. Our visit to Medellin started very early in the morning and the first thing we did was going to our hostel. It was nice and cheap...

Agur Caribe!!!

Toda la noche en autobus para llegar a la ciudad de Medellin. Metro hasta "poblado" y al hostel "Casa Kiwi". Ducha, desayuno y al centro... que el tiempo vuela...!!! De aqui es el escultor Fernando Botero y hay una plaza con un monton de estatuas suyas. A la tarde al hostel, charlada con...

Medellín, ACTUALIZADO! CON FOTO FELICITACIÓN Y FOTO PROTESTA

Aunque pasamos unas 10 horas en el autobús, suerte que era muy cómodo, espacioso y con aire acondicionado, el viaje valió mucho la pena, al menos por la vista. Pasamos de un paisaje costeño, más o menos plano, verde y con plantaciones de bananos (plátanos) por todos sitios, al paisaje...

Futbol en Medellín

Right now I'm in Medellín and it's 28-32 always. It's called "The City of Eternal Spring". Yeah, after many months in moderate to cold temperatures I am finally in hot weather!! Woot woot!! It's beautiful here too - many trees and parks that create shaded areas perfect for mugging oblivious...

La Alma de la Ciudad

Only one question matters to anybody who is travelling correctly: Where do I find the soul of the city - the main nerve? I´ve spent over two months in Medellin now, hounding this very inquiry. Its probably not in the top-rated Lonely Planet hostels - surrogate frat-houses dotting the...

City of Brick

Medellin, enchanted city, home of the silicon buttcheek, where no one remembers the natural light of stars and the sun has barely been named, where the paisas wear their souls on their skin and old men sing sad songs in the streets selling guanabana juice by the cup, where notices in the park...

Jillian vs. Colombian Cusine

Jillian flew out from California to experience the spice of Colombia for a week. We did it all. The Metrocable, Botero Plaza, the Gobierno Square, Parque de los Pies Descalzos, The so-called EMP ¨Intelligent Building¨, El Jardin Botanico, and beyond. One day we met up with Steve and...

Underbelly

Though not a noctournal city by any means, there is no such thing as a dull evening in Medellin. One needs not look far for free movie screenings, theatre productions, live music, art shows, dance shows, or just about any other form of cultural entertainment that can be placed on a showbill. ...

Colombia Loves Coldplay

It´s true. Everywhere you go you catch the tail end of ¨Yellow¨ or some melanchollie piano intro. Stepping off the Metro, enduring existential breakdowns in Exito. Even at the orchid garden when you arrive after sunset for the free ¨Happening¨ listed in the Fractal ´09 program, there´s...

Cyberpunk in El Jardin Botanico

I moved into my apartment on a rainy Thursday afternoon, a pretty fundamental affair cosidering that the entirety of my material belongs could easily be transported on the back of a large house cat. The complex looks like a prison from the outside and is inhabited mostly by students from the...
