Where I stayed
My friend's place
The temperature was cold for Medellin, just 10 degrees but with that warm balmy air feel. I opened the taxi window to let the breeze wake me up and cool me down. I was exhausted and explained to the taxi driver how I’d been traveling for almost 24 hours now
After the great welcome at the airport I then also had a great welcome from Natasha at her home. We ate ‘arepas’, a flat tortilla made of corn – and homemade ones too and drank strawberry sparking wine. We told ourselves it was like drinking fruit juice. After quite a few glasses of that juice and lots of chatting later I went to sleep and woke up in Medellin to sunshine and a cool crisp air. I could hear the birds on the trees right outside the apartment window and I realised here I was. I was back. Over breakfast we listened to salsa and bachata music whilst eating more ‘arepas’ and scrambled eggs. The only thing we didn’t have was milk for my tea, but then all was fine and tea was drank, but I will have to get used to not having many teas as usual.
