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*
