FROM BOGOTA THE BUS LEAVE BOGOTA AT 5:00 PM AS YOU LEAVE THE CITY OF  YOU WILL PASS ALL THE BAD SIDE AND  DEPRESED AREA OF BOGOTA.  AND ARRIVED MEDELLIN  , COLOMBIA AT 4:00 AM IN THE MORNING .ITS LONG ROUGH RIDE AND MOSTLY WINDING ROAD THAT MAKE ME LIGHTHEADED . 

 SINCE ITS TOO EARLY AN NO BUS AROUND  AND TOO SLEEPY TOO. I TOOK THE TAXI TO THE HOSTEL. AND WHEN I ARRIVED I PAID THE TAXI DRIVER WITH MY 50 THOUSAND PESOS BILL AND THE TAXI  DRIVER TOLD ME THAT HE DONT HAVE A CHANGE FOR 50 FIFTHY THOUSAND PESOS AND HE ALSO HAVE 50 THOUSAND PESOS ON HIS OTHER HAND AND CHECK MY POCKET TO PAY HIM 15THOUSAND PESOS AND RETURN MY 50 THOUSAND PESOS .  

THEN , HAVE A BREAKFAST BESIDE THE HOSTEL AND WHEN I PAID THEM THEY TOLD ME MY FIFTHY THOUSAND PESOS IS FAKE. NOW I REMEMBER  WHEN THE TAXI DRIVER TOLD ME HE DONT HAVE A CHANGE HOLDING ANOTHER FIFTHY THOUSAND PESOS ON THE OTHER HAND AND SWITCHED WHEN I PAID HIM . FOR THIS INCIDENCE I LEARNED THAT WHEN YOU CHANGE MONEY MAKE SURE USE SMALL DENOMINATION .  AND BE MORE CAREFULL ON THIS KIND OF CITIES . ACCORDING TO THE SURVEY MEDELLIN IS ONE OF THE BEST CITIES TO LIVE IN LATIN AMERICA  LIKE BARCELONA,  LISBON. BUT TO LIVE VERY SAFE IN THIS CITY YOU NEED TO USE IRON BAR GRILL AND ELECTRIC FENCE TO PROTECT YOUR SELF. 

   MEDELLIN IS VERY POPULAR FOR YOUNG EUROPEAN TOURIST BECAUSE OF MANY REASON.  

 MOVING AROUND THE CITY IS VERY  CONVENIENT BECAUSE OF THE METRO EASY TO REACH ALL TOURIST DESTINATION.  

 THE MAIN ATTRACTION HERE IS THE PARK WHERE FERNANDO BOTERO SHOW HIS BRONZE SCULTURE WORK. AND THIS IS THE CTY OF HIS BIRTH AND DONATED ALL STATUE FOR THE PEOPLE TO APPRECIATE HIS WORK. 

            AND ANOTHER STATUE OF SIMON BOLIVAR.
