Travel Blogs from Medellin
There wasn't too much in Medellin that interested me but I knew I wanted to go to the Botanical Gardens so I started the day there. It was free to go in. In the first section that I walked, I heard rustling near me and a big turtle scared the whits out of me. Later on I saw many more turtles and iguanas in the lake.

The gunmen, ´siclarios' as they were known were just average citizens, down on their luck, hired by the cartels to wipe out anyone they didn´t like. They needed the money and being the God fearing Catholics they were, squared their conscience with the Virgin Mary by making a pact with her ...
