So, about half a year ago me and a few of my co-workers had to travel outside of our usual zone… In my case, I ended up working a couple of days in Mexico, then a quick trip to Medellin (Bogota was delayed) and a layover in New York.
I’ll get to Mexico/NYC later. Here’s Medellin.
I arrived quite late at night.. and tired. Luckily a taxi was arranged and on our way down into the valley we got a decent view of the city down below. I didn’t get any great photos, but.. yeah.
Now, I just arrived from Mexico. According to original plans, this would be a quick stop in between Mexico city and Bogota. Sooo.. Unfortunately the first sunlight I saw was on Tuesday and I’d be flying out on Thursday. Not a lot of time for work and impressions.
Despite the stories, jokes and warnings I ventured out on my second evening anyway. The first was spent messing with cables/learning Spanish. By this time it must’ve been Wednesday evening. Camera, phone, wallet.. I don’t even think I had a backpack with me.
Somewhere around this time I thought some guys on a motorcycle were scouting for a victim to rob. Luckily for me, they didn’t hang around long when I waited them out at a shop.
Again. I didn’t know this city, streets nor the language. Just walking as I please 🙂
After finding my way back down and into some sort of shopping area, I filled my tummy.. which had been rumbling for quite a while. And guess who didn’t have cash. Yeah..
Once I gave up and was walking back towards the general direction of my hotel, I met a few youngsters sitting in the grass next to a foodtruck .. thing. Some even spoke English. Made my day 🙂 🙂 🙂
