con la frente marchita,
las nieves del tiempo
platearon mi sien.
Sentir, que es un soplo la vida,
que veinte aÃ±os no es nada,
que febril la mirada…
Ok, lets not be drama queens: coming back to MedellÃn after less than one an a half years is not as dramatic as Carlos GardelÂ´s tango “Volver”. But I felt like singing and as a free piece of knowledge for today, let me tell you that Gardel died in MedellÃn when his plane crashed back in 1935.
This trip to MedellÃn has been great: I’ve been able to see family and friends. I had visited towns around the city that I hadnt visited since I moved to Austin. I got to be at Paola’s wedding at Fizebad and met her family and friends. And I got to show my hometown to my non-colombian friends which I believe left this country with a great impression.
As always pictures are worth a thousand words.

No better way to end this post with a very paisa style phrase: MedellÃn es una chimba parce!
