Hello everyone, just wanted to fill you all in on what has been going on over the last few days. Currently, we are smack dab in the middle of Colombia in the amazing city of Medellin. Many of you may have heard of Medellin as a result of one of its most notorious residents, Pablo Escobar. Well, Pablo has been gone from the scene here for a while and as a result of a prolonged crackdown on crime and gangs by the current Colombian President Alvaro Uribe,(who also happens to hail from the area), Medellin is now a safe and surprisingly cosmopolitan city.
