For all those considering Medellin, I can recommend it as a good place to get accustumed to the Colombian, or specifically the Antioqian, way of life. A trip to the Parque Arvi just outside Medellin was one of my first trips. The voyage itself to get there was also fantastic, taking us over the Communas (Favellas) and a large forrested area by ...
