Medellin Nightlife

I finally got the chance to check out the nightlife in Medellin and it was more fun than I expected. My really sweet host wanted to take me out dancing since I had mentioned how much I love dancing, he suggested meeting his friends at a particular club because they were having a reunion. I was a bit hesitant at first because I thought I would be bored but decided to give it a shot. I am so glad I did because I ended up having so much fun!

His friends were super sweet and friendly and they included me like I was part of the gang, it was fun dancing with them and learning new dance styles from Colombia. I swear this country has many different types of music and dances, it's fun learning them.

Can you spot yours truly? the guy in the brown jacket is a really good dancer!

That's it folks, I had a very fun night and that's all there is to say.

Random Thoughts of The Day:

There is a dance called champeta which is common in the coastal areas of Colombia, let's just say you may need a pregnancy test after the dance.

My Spanish teacher was telling me that it is very common here for girls to get pregnant at 13 then their parents not only end up raising the girls, they also raise the grandkids.

Aguardiente is one hell of a drink. I only had two shots and stopped at that, I know my limit.

I have to admit I have seen so many good looking guys around here. I know looks are not everything but I can still appreciate an attractive guy.

I wish I had packed more tops than dresses before starting my trip.

I am glad I am renting a room from a local and I get to experience their day to day lives and learn more about their culture.

A lot of times when people ask what I am doing here and I say that I am traveling through Latin America for a few months to experience the culture and learn Spanish, I feel a bit frivolous.
