The drive through the mountains and down into Medellin from the airport was beautiful. So lush and green everywhere you look, except where the buildings and construction projects shoot up from the hillsides. We’ve had some heavy rain as we settle in for our first night in Medellin.

This three bedroom place is in a much newer and taller building, but much smaller than our Bogota apartment. Hopefully we can be comfortable here. Time will tell.

Update: June 8 – This was Itagüí, not Medellin!

It didn’t look like much of a difference on the map, but after having lived here for month I can tell you. It does not feel like Medellin, or even try to. I’ll do better picking places in the future.
