December in Medellin

December is a joyful time in many latitudes, but in Medellin, and of course the surrounding areas, this time of the year is more than just that.

Even on the last days of November one can see that everything start to change: Christmas decorations all over the city: every single house, building and store is properly adorned (sometimes too much); barrios streets and main avenues are illuminated with thousands of colored patterns; people’s mood improves radically and all tourist places are packed with visitors from all around the world.

There is a huge contrast between this warm celebrations and those in many places in the northern hemisphere. It´s not only about the weather but it’s also the festive soul of the city.
