Medellín, Colombia’s 21st-Century Metropolis

The final stop of my journey through the incredible country of Colombia was Medellín. After three weeks spent exploring national parks, worshipping in cathedrals made of salt and trekking the stomping ground of Juan Valdez, I was eager at the prospect of being back in a city.

To be sure, I knew prior to visiting Medellín that it would be modern. It wasn’t until I set foot in the former base of Colombia’s drug lords, however, that I realized to what extent this would be true.

 

Long a favored place of residence for Colombia’s wealthy — and, these days, for foreign expatriates from all over the globe — Medellín is en route to becoming one of the quintessential cities of the 21st century.
