In my frustration, this week I came to the odd conclusion that bird identification shares a lot of parallels with dating. But first, before I get into the intricacies of my half baked analogy an important announcement! So allow me to share this PSA form of a Game of Thrones meme for all Central and South American birders.
If you cant tell by this opening paragraph this post is going to be insanely random!
Surprisingly I haven’t seen any written comparisons of Medellín vs Bucaramanga.
This is surprising as both cities have similar climates.
It was easily and fairly cheaply reached by cab (30,000COP there and 20,000COP back) and it took about 45 minutes for me to get there from my apartment.
Things got off to an amazing start right off the bat when I ran into a mixed species foraging flock within the first half hour of my walk.
We previously compared Medellín vs Pereira as two cities of eternal spring in Colombia.
But Bucaramanga in Colombia can also be considered a city of eternal spring.
But it might have been the best ceviche I ever had. But two of the owners at Kasa Guane, two friendly Brits named Tim and Milo, were getting it fixed. And at least I was able to get online a couple of times. I met her a few weeks earlier, shortly after I returned to Medellín from Florida.
The best way to describe it would be as a – “Mini-Medellin”.
With that being said, if you haven’t been to Medellin that comparison would be worth as much as one colombian peso.
Buca, as locals call it, is a city of 1 million known for its nightlife. I realized something else: completing any task on an empty stomach is hard to do, especially when your tummy is rumbling.
With 10 universities, it’s no surprise the rumba here is alive and well. After I settled in at Kasa Guane, I headed to Martín Vaz do Mar, a seafood restaurant about four blocks away overlooking Parque Las Palmas.
