The Dann Carlton surpassed all expectations. From the moment you enter the lobby, it's old world service. Comfortable, good size rooms, great breakfast and a very helpful bilingual staff.

Medellin is or was the drug capital of the world. Fuelled by Pablo Escobar and his cartel of merry men. While he did die (was either shot dead by DEA or took his own life depending who's side you're on ) in 1993 his legacy lives on and top of our list of things to do was to do the Pablo tour.

The band is a Puerto Rican hip hop group that is huge in Colombia. I have heard a bunch of their tunes already and their name kept ...
It was a really nice day today with the sun out.. We got up early and had our breakfast before walking down to the metro station. We caught the metro to the gondola which is used as transport up and down the hills. It's all part of the 1,900 COP fee for the metro and gondola. It's one of the only places in the world that uses gondolas as public transport. There were 3 places you can stop on the way up the hills and like we did just stay on until ...
