Medellin, Colombia

The rolling hills and emerald-green mountainous terrain impressed me when I visited Costa Rica. Now I am in Medellin, Colombia, and I did not expect it to be just as green, mountainous, and downright gorgeous as I have found it to be.

I snapped a photo for good measure…

The COPA Airlines flight was smooth and I was not hassled by the Customs official as I was worried I would be because I did not have a departure ticket upon arrival.

I chose to make the trip away from Panama, which is where I lived over the past week after I moved away from Costa Rica. Panama may be less expensive than Costa Rica, but where I stayed — Hostal Posada 1914 — things were quickly adding up. I heard Colombia is cheaper and when I ordered dinner tonight, I realized that that is definitely true.

My dinner cost $4.50!
