Guatapè, updates, apologies, Thanks!
I know. I already know. Next time I make a blog promise, I will try not to do it before a weekend trip and two holidays, ok? One day after promising to blog every other day, I took a weekend trip to Guatapé, Colombia. It was a great time. I climbed the rock, ate so-so food, and thought there would be a middle of the night break-in at my hostel. Yes, fun times all around. After I returned, there was more fun. Colombia has had two holidays (I do not know what they are/were) and I was able to meet the Young Black Expats! In any case, I neglected my blog and I apologize for it. However, I did post on YouTube! Is that consolation?
Anyhoo, I am leaving Medellín in a few days and I am sad. It was love at first sight with Medellín, and I delayed buying my ticket until it was three times the original price. :( I couldn't press "purchase" until it was so expensive that I HAD to purchase it. I feel horrible for being sad because I am going to Peru next. My journey continues and being sad about that feels like a waste. On the bright side, I could always return to Medellín if I choose. It will still be here. It will still be beautiful. In all honesty, leaving will probably be best for me because Medellín may be making me lazy. I think I have gotten too comfortable here and am not working as hard as I could. This is a theory that I will test in the next countries that I visit. Is it me, them, or a combination of both. I suspect that it is mostly me, but I am easily lulled into more chill, less work. So, yea. It is probably me. So, while I am sad to leave MDE, it is probably a great thing for me at the moment. Probably.
YouTube: I am over 900 subscribers! YES! I am grateful!
Speaking of YouTube, check out this video of me climbing the Peñol de Guatapè. They claim to have the best views in the world, but you can judge that for yourself.
Thank you, all.
