2019 October: Colombia – Medellin

The last stop on my trip through Colombia was the metropolis of Medellín. Medellín is in a state of change. Not so long ago Medellin was known for its drug cartel and a very high crime rate. Since then it has developed rapidly and has become more and more a showcase for the whole of Latin America.

Besides the centre with its old colonial buildings, the old Favela Comuna 13 has been transformed into a trendy quarter and a melting pot of different cultures.

At the end of the almost three-week journey through Colombia, I spent one more day in Bogota before moving to Quito in Ecuador.
