Day 78 - October 19th

Alrighty, today we got to explore what Medellin had to offer. We woke up hungover, but on time to go for breakfast down the road at a cool cafe type place called Al Alma and get back to the hostel before our free walking tour of the city. Carolina was our guide and she was very educational and had answers for all our questions which was great - definitely a recommended experience. We started the tour by taking the Metro downtown (which was super clean and nice), and she lead us around to a chill spot to give us a quick history lesson.  We eventually explored around the city and she brought us to some really cool spots to places like: the church that the hookers hang out in front of, and side of the other church where you can buy porn or minions DVDs.  Not typical things we would have found had we been exploring solo and it was nice to get our bearings in a bigger city like this. The tour was quite long (but awesome) and we finished up around 2:00pm back at the hostel with much more knowledge of Medellin than we started with. We gave Carolina a nice tip (as expected on these free walking tours), and chilled out for the rest of the required based on our drinking the night prior.
