Flag of Colombia  ,
Monday, February 21, 2011

With me on the first leg of my around the world trip is my BFF. Sadly she won't be with me for the whole trip just the South American part but hey we've got a whole continent to explore. We drive down to Fort Lauderdale to board the usual crappy Spirit Airlines flight to Colombia.
 
Our first stop, Medellin, is called the city of Eternal Spring because of the weather here. Because of the altitude of about 5000 feet Medellin would be perfect for Goldilocks as the temperature is not too cold, not too hot, it is just right.
Unfortunately Medellin specifically and Colombia suffer from the bad image and press as the home of some of the infamous drug cartels. Sure the cartels still exist and there are some really dodgy areas but Medellin also is very modern and has some amazingly safe and beautiful neighborhoods. Mountains surround the city and make it very scenic but what makes Medellin even more beautiful is the amazing women called "Paisas". If there is a city that can compete with Rio for the hottest women on earth it's Medellin.
