Left Santa Fe and drove to Medellin as we did not want to skip this city.
Our GPS wanted to send us in all directions except where we wanted to go. We asked a young man at the bus stop for directions to the centre, and he offered to ride with us to show us the way. He asked what we wanted to see and after we told him he offered to be our guide as he still was on holiday and would love to show us his town. Well we had the best tour. Went to the Mirador, the top of the mountain in the city. On the way down he told us to lock our doors and close the windows as we were going through a rough part of town. Parked in the centre and took the Metro to the Gondola and had a 45 minutes ride over the city. The metro was spotless, not a pice of garbage anywhere. The price for Metro and Gondola was one dollar per person. We are constantly surprised how friendly people are, and how curious and full of questions about our travels, and always will say welcome to columbia. The Botero museum is also very nice. We had a very good dinner at a traditional columbian restaurant then did some grocery shopping and after that our new friend and guide Arnaldo rode with us to the edge of town where we said goodby to him. How fortunate we are.
We are now camped in El Pinon and tomorrow will travel towards Bogota. We are in the mountains so a nice cool night.
Hugs to all.
