Fruit stall - Medellin
there is fruit like this everywhere you go in Colombia, and is absolutely deliciuos so I'm usually walking around with a mango or a bunch of phat grapes in my hand
Well again nothing really amazing to report for over the last week, I've just been soaking up the festive atmosphere here in Medellin and enjoying the company of the very friendly locals. I was only going to stay for a couple of days but as always, have gotten a little bit comfotrtable, and just now I've stumbled across a humble little Salsa school out in a suburb called Floresta and so have signed up for a 4clase course so it looks like I'll probably be around here for a little while longer.
What has stuck me the most so far about Medellin, and Colombia in General, is that the people are genuinely interested in what I'm doing and where I've come from and make a real effort to make me feel "like a son of the great mother - Colombia", as put to me by one very cool guy who ended up giving me his shirt. Check out these photo's of some of the people I've met over the last few days...
