Nope, I didn’t lie. I actually came back to write a post about my trip to Colombia in July! As much as I wanted to write about it, I wasn’t actually sure I would so yay! All right about Colombia, we visited the cities of Medellin and Cartagena. We spent the most time in Medellin (where the competition was held) and I really loved it. It’s such a great city!
The gang: Petr, Lucie, G, and me!
Seeing all the swimming pools from the top floor of this hotel:
We spent so much time at the pools, but had a bit of time to walk around the city and even take a tour.
We liked trying the street food and some of it turned out to be some of our favorite things to eat in Colombia.
Those are potatoes with salt and sauce. Not my favorite thing, but George ate them all – per usual.
I think everyone loved the arepas con queso the most! And they only cost about $1. I would eat these every single day if I lived there.
We spent an afternoon walking around Medellin. Petr read about some church and we decided to walk there. Along the way, we found Plaza Botero, which is an outdoor museum that displays 23 sculptures by Colombian artist Fernando Botero. I’m not normally a fan of museums, but I really enjoyed seeing these sculptures.
And we made it to the church:
Which was fine, but I enjoyed the walk through the city more and seeing all the giant sculptures. It was nice to have a destination, though, and a reason to turn around 🤣.
A couple of days after this, we took a tour of Comuna 13, which we all loved. That will be my next post.
Hope you’re all enjoying the holiday weekend!
