“She was like the sun,
She knew her place in the world -
She would shine again regardless
of all the storms and changeable weather
She wouldn't adjust her purpose
for things that pass.”

The first thing I noticed about the sidewalks in Medellin was the consistent row of gridded concrete that stood out from the rest of the otherwise smooth surface. It confused and annoyed me because I just couldn’t figure out what it was for (and if you know me, you know that I need to KNOW :-)) It wasn’t comfortable to walk on and much to the chagrin of my sometimes-OCD brain, the grid never fell right in the middle of the sidewalk, but was always either slightly left of center or slightly right of center, which left me even without the cold comfort of symmetry.

Fast forward to my first day in Bogota, and I see the very same gridded concrete. Thankfully, I was walking with Bri, who had been equally confused by them until she found out that they were installed to assist blind pedestrians walking on Colombia’s sidewalks!

Now, far from being annoyed, I love these gridded paths and the purpose for which they were laid. It’s such a simple and brilliant way to show a vulnerable population that they have a right to travel freely and safely throughout their cities.

I climbed over 700 steps for these views. It did not disappoint. #Guatape #Colombia

If you had told me a year ago that I would be in Medellín, Colombia, once considered the most dangerous city in the world, I would have laughed in your face. Yet here I am and the more I learn about this city and its people, the more I love it.
