I’m learning I really dislike the cities. I’ve decided to head to a place called Jardin. A small little village 3.5 hours, by bus, from Medellin.
Medellin is not quite as bad as Bogota, but I’m not feeling the love for this place either. I did take the metro to parque berrio and wandered a bit. A friendly English speaking man called to me, he had lived in the USA for 15 years, and asked where I was from and if I was travelling alone. He said to me, I love my country, but be careful.
I should say, the metro station I needed to take from where I’m staying is right next to the soccer stadium. Tonight is a match between 2 Colombian teams. It was mobbed there, jerseys, beer drinking, plastic horns, traffic, people… crazy town! I only connected all those dots once I returned to where I’m staying. Its on tv just now. Oh, and I left the chip to my camera in my tablet, so when I went to take pics… I couldn’t!
Will be in touch after I arrive to Jardin. Ciao.
