1444-Medellin Countryside – Colombia

Medellin, Colombia at an altitude of 5,000 feet is surrounded by beautiful mountain jungle. It is not your Amazon or costal regions, but a combination of towering trees, lush vegetation, and sprawling farmland. Everything was green, green, green. It rained on us a few times, but to embrace this primordial jungle was breathtaking.

Rich farmland an jungle.

These stuffed characters are apparently a cultural tradition for the country people around Medellin.
They are on every corner of the highway for miles.
