Day 8: Medellín is possibly the weirdest city I have ever visited. With a history that's cold and dark, the countless slums, and a current image that's all about it's nightlife, the city is full of contradictions.
Not just Medellín, but the entire country is working towards a better future. Never before have I felt more welcome despite speaking too little Spanish to express myself in full sentences. The villages are bright and colourful, the big cities somewhat chaotic and sometimes overwhelming. The nature is insanely beautiful and the grass greener than I could even imagine. And music is everywhere, whether it comes from a speaker on a balcony or from the colourful birds singing their song in the jungle.
But the history of the country is still noticeable, and that is definitely not a bad thing, it makes it interesting. Though I think it's going to take a while before this side of the country is fully faded away. Just like the mist in Medellín.
