It’s starting to warm up here in Medellín and that means the frequency of rain showers is going down and the number of beautiful days is going up. We couldn’t be happier to be entering into Colombia’s busy holiday season with nearly a year under our belts in this terrific country we call home. The months of November, December, and January are magical times in Colombia when life slows down, more time is spent with friends and family, and there’s something going on pretty much every weekend.
Speaking of which, we’re in the midst of a wonderful weekend in Medellín. Last night was the 3rd annual International Tango festival where professional Tango dancers from around the country and world came to our city to show off their stuff and entertain the masses. Today, on Saturday, there is an all-day artisan market where artists and craft makers from nearby villages flood into downtown to set up their stalls and hock their wares. You can head down there if you’re in need of new furniture, some antiques for your collection, or just a souvenir to give as a gift back home. And tomorrow, on Sunday, the city’s Botanical Garden opens its gates to the public so they can enjoy the Mercado Verde or Green Market. In addition to the organic farmer’s market, free tai chi and yoga classes are offered, gardening lessons and free concerts. It’s an all-around funfest.

We are in the middle of the Feria de las Flores (Flower Festival) Medellin’s biggest annual festival, and one of the most popular in all of Colombia. Everyday we’ll be bringing you multiple blogs and videos about the events we’re attending, such as concerts, parades and exhibitions. Viva la Feria!
The event everyone recommended we checkout during the feria was Orquideas, Pájaros y Flores (Orchids, Birds and Flowers) at the Botanical Gardens. We beat the crowds by attending in the early afternoon on a weekday but still had to compete for space to see the thousands upon thousands of gorgeous flowers. I never realized how many varieties of orchids existed, but I’m sure I saw just about every single one of them after an afternoon at the gardens. In addition to the orchids there were tropical flowers, roses, lilies, gerbera daisies, chrysanthemums, and I could go on and on. Take a look at some of our favorite flowers and don’t forget you can see more on our Picasa page.
