That's the way to do it! - Medellín

Really excited and a bit tired, after another long bus ride during the night (Philippe: still not my favorit way to travel :)) did we arrive in Medellín. Upon arrival in Medellín, it already got clear that this city is going to be different than Bogotá. Sice they have a metro (the only one in Colombia) it's super easy to get around. The bus terminal (not all though) is connected to the metro and it's super easy to get around. And best of all, the weather is great. It's warm but not hot and not too humid. Just what we love. We decided to stay central at El Poblado. Right decicion! Medellín is such a great city! Like all the people in Colombia told us, the people are super friendly and it's full of beautiful bars and amazing restaurants. The zona rosa, the area to go out, is huge and just a blast at night. It's also busy but the people are much more relaxed and due to the metro system, it's way easier to get around. There is another great way of transportation in Medellín.... Cable cars!!! Yeah that's right. To reach the pueblos up the hill they installed cable cars in the city. What an idea! A must do in Medellín. Great views over the city and a good opportunity for a chat with locals. One cable car goes directly to the Arvi National park. A great place to get some distance from the city with chilled hikes. This city has a loooot to offer. Take your time and get around. It's hard to belive that this was one of the most, if not the most dangerous city in the world, only a few years ago. Now that the narcos are "gone" it's a vibrant and charming city. A great change Colombia, a great change Medellín! One of our favorite big cities in the world so far. Till next time!
