Photo Friday: A Serious Christmas Lights in Medellin

Christmas Lights in Medellin

Supposedly Medellin, Colombia is listed as one of the five places in the world that you must see lights. Their display not only costs quite a hefty chunk of change but creates jobs AND they sell the lights to other countries to supplement their yearly changing display. The Christmas lights in Medellin are just fantastic.

I have never seen such an ambitious set of lights in my life. It makes the Trail of Lights in Austin (that has been cancelled for years now) look like a joke!

Families are out until the lights close at 1am and street food vendors line up with goodies like sour mango with salt, pepper, and lime, meat on a stick, candied apples… OH GOD. *drool*

Does YOUR CIA building have a Christmas fountain show? Yeah, I didn’t think so.

This installation is MASSIVE. As big as a building. The picture gives it no justice… AND a working clock!
