16 Mar 2018 (Medellin, Colombia): Today is our last full day in Medellin, and there was no debate or discussion at all about where we should go for lunch: Los Chamos! This is the Venezuelan place on the parallel block. The menú del dia (three course lunch special) here is cheap and large, the ambience […]
