It turned out that our guide was studying "Story Telling", which is a big thing in Colombia. Her skill, enthusiasm and animation certainly added to ...

Mesmerising Medellin

... to find a restaurant to eat at. We wanted Chinese, but we couldn't find anything close by. I knew one area of the city that had nicer restaurants, so I Googled that area. Finally after 30 minutes, I was able to find something. It is hard when you don't know the area as you don't know if the restaurant is 5 minutes away or 30. It was located in the mountain foothills about 15 minutes away. We could see many 30 story apartment buildings that ...
