Medellin, Colombia

Despite our Medellin hosts not having hot shower water, slow Internet, and the public toilets not having the lids I’ve been accustomed to my entire life, I enjoyed Colombia’s beautiful landscape, access to the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans combined with traditional grazing and abundant tropical fruits plus extremely favorable exchange rates.

Restaurants, movies, and travel were less than a third the prices of any other major US city. Movies were 2-4 dollars with a bottle of water costing another dollar at the concession. Buses and rail were about 60 cents a ride. Taxis cost a few dollars for quick trips to get off our feet for a few minutes.
