The super modern MetroCable system was introduced as part of Medellín's MetroRail in 2006. There are several more MetroCables to various areas around the city and more under construction. The logic behind building these was geared towards developing the lower-income neighborhoods that line the highest reaches of outer Medellín. From the example of Santo Domingo, it looks like things are really rolling. Once inaccessible to tourists, the twisting cobbled streets remind of a small town Italy or Spain. We got a fantastic a lunch for only 5,000 pesos then headed down to the black obelisk that is the barrio's library/community/daycare center. These architectural peculiarities have been popping up all over the city, giving Medellín a very furturistic and developed feel. (No surprise the current mayor is an architect).
Ah but walking with Argentines was fun, because every time anyone shouted "gringos," I could shake my head and yell back "argentinos!" Ah but alas, we were the true boludos, as none of us remembered to bring a camera. And with that I'll leave you with some amazing images that show how many cool buildings like this exist in Medellín.
