Chicos preparing the parachute
Me, paragliding...nice double chin action.
Birds eye view of Medellín. It was cloudy but I could see how the city sprawled out.
My dangling pies (pee-ehs: feet)
People enjoying the paragliders.
How Spring like and comfy.After a short weekend in Medellín I took a two hour bus to Guatapé. The city was lively and very nice. I took a boat ride of the lake Embalse Peñol-Guatapé.
These fun ladies were bailando la salsa.
My new amigo, him and his friends were very nice and made sure that I wasn't sitting on the party boat like a lonely gringa.
The next day I took a bike ride.
Got some beautiful views of El Embalse.
Zorro, the town dog who everyone knows and loves took us on an adventure.
La Piedra, yet to hike it but will.
Some of the houses in Guatapé. It's like the Cape for Paisanos or peeps from Medellín.
El tipico, o Bandeja Paisa is a typical dish here in the state of Antioquia. Heart attack on a plate but I couldn't have been more happy eating it after an adventurous hike.
shamelessly asked nice woman to take photo of me eating an oblea. Soo good!
View from la piedra.
Steps to the top!
Waterfall in guatape!
There are about 600 steps to the top and I huffed and puffed at every step.
