The city is in full swing in preparation for Christmas, and their internationally renowned Christmas light display. I hope we get back to Medellin in time to see it, as I've heard it is outstanding.
We went to a trendy area called Parque Lleras for dinner one night with Craig, Roger's Operations Manager from Australia. The atmosphere is electric and fun to walk around. The plaza was lit up for Christmas, and it indeed, looked magical.
|Desserts at the Basilica were all fabulous but I think my Creme Brulee was the overall winner.|

We checked out one of the modern malls in El Poblado, called the Santa Fe. The huge glass roof can be retracted on sunny days, and a skating rink has been installed for the Christmas season.
