August 15 – September 25: Medellin, Colombia

You may have noticed we haven’t traveled very far in the past four months. What can I say, we like Medellin. We have settled into another Airbnb apartment.

That is not something that makes it attractive to us, we prefer more authentic Colombian experiences. But it does mean we could satisfy our desires for North America products, if we are willing to pay North American prices.

This three bedroom place is in a much newer and taller building, but much smaller than our Bogota apartment. Hopefully we can be comfortable here. Time will tell.
