My Quick Tour of Medellin

January 31, 2010

We walked to the train station

Which is the public transport system. For $1 we rode all the way to where the the MetroCable connect and took the cable cars up up and above the city.

Medellin was promoting cleanliness, and let me tell you: It is the cleanest City I have every been in, and I am usually a harsh critic of cities. It is DEFINITELY cleaner than NY City–we could learn a lot from these folks!!!

Medellin is the former drug capital of Colombia, but it seemed pretty tranquilo from my vantage point. Other travelers reported having a really good time there.

My buddy Adolfo and I.

Our hosts Jose and Patricia.

The cable cars DO take you over the poorest sections of the City…but the views are s-p-e-c-t-a-c-u-l-a-r!

A mural I saw from above.  I’m always enchanted by murals.

Well, I’ll be honest. Things got weird. Basically we aborted the tour and went to got something to eat.

I decided to leave Medellin the next day.
