Medellín, Day 9

Could it possibly be that our program in Colombia has come to its last day?  Today’s last company visit was with Ruta N.  Many had follow up meetings with our start ups, and then free time for the three S’s: shopping, sight seeing, and souveniers.

We officially closed the program with a dinner at Carmen Medellín.

How does your impression of Medellín differ from that of the Zona Cafetera and Bogotá?  What were the take-aways from today’s activities?

Given the different meet up times with our start up companies, today was one of the most flexible of the trip.  Some groups met with their Colombian partners for full presentations, others had initial meetings, and others scheduled visits for another day.

What we did enjoy together was a visit with Santiago at EPM and with Agostinho & Patricia at Promotora.

How did you day go and what did you learn for your experience this day?

Yes, we really did fly back to Bogotá again today, and yes flights again were delayed.  No problem, upon arriving we were met by John and Adriana, and they helped us get settled into our hotel and then sent us on our city tour.

Botero square, gondola rides, and a visit to see the graffiti art and community spirit near the escalators.  What a tremendous introduction to Medellín.
