On a personal note: I am spending the first two weeks of my summer
break in Colombia, visiting my in-laws. City maps in Colombia have a certain system to it, with carreras and calles. All good, and even the navigation system bought into it; unfortunately, I forgot to tell it that I meant to be in the South part
of Medellin rather than the North part, with the result that instead of ending up in our hotel we ended up in the middle of a comuna (aka favela). Oh well, at least we got to know Medellin extensively and saw for ourselves how this city has transformed itself
over the past 25 years, since Pablo Escobar was killed. A metropolitan city with lots of things to offer. One of the (many) highlights: El cielo, a restaurant that goes beyond food and drink to offer
“experiences” – if anyone ever happens to be in Medellin, a must-go (the same chef has also restaurants in Bogota and Miami).
