... takes you to this cool park where we enjoyed a picnic. We went on a walking tour of Medellin where we got a great insight into the city, on all things not related to Pablo Escobar! We also got a great introduction to the history of Colombia and its current political state of affairs. Our guide was fantastic!

We hung around the station until 7:30 and then made our way to the Black Sheep Hostel which we have heard good things about. They were full so we headed off in search of another called Pit Stop which we had seen from the cab, thankfully they had room and it appeared to be a much nicer place.
