Antioquia, Colombia

Horse

After yet another lengthy absence from my neglected blog, I felt inspired to post something new. In February, Ashley and I headed south to Colombia for our annual trip abroad. Our first stop was the city of Medellín, the once incredibly violent, but recently transformed capital of the department of Antioquia. As part of our stay here, we took a guided tour through the coffee region of Antioquia. What follows are photos of one of the most beautiful, lush landscapes I have ever seen.
