Stop At: Medellín Colombia, Cra. 63C #42-2 a 42-150, Medellín, Antioquia, Colombia

Pablo Escobar is probably one of the most famous characters in recent Colombian history. It is probable that if you decided to come to Colombia, you’ve seen the thrilling Netflix series ‘Narcos.’ Most of what you watched there is true, however, if you are intrigued by the real and non-Hollywood story, you’ll surely enjoy learning while in the context in which the story took place with this tour.
You’ll be picked up at your hotel at 10:00 am to take the route to the truth. During this whole tour, you will learn about the strategies Escobar used to gain power, and how this led him to fight two wars: One against the government and the other against the Cali Cartel. Throughout the tour, you will also hear the tour guide’s anecdotes of that time.
Your first stop will be at the place where Escobar lived: Edificio Mónaco. This building was demolished on March 2019 and now is being replaced by a memorial park for his victims. Here, you will start to learn his story and understand why he was the most feared man in Colombia; loved and hated by many. Most importantly, you will learn how, for more than a decade, he shook the country to its very core.
Before going to the cemetery where he was buried, you will pass through La Gruta, to see a Virgin Mary Statue commonly known as La Virgen de Los Sicarios (the Virgin of the Assasins.) This virgin was very popular amongst hired assassins who pray to her to bless their bullets, guns, and murders. Once you arrive at the cemetery, you will hear about the duality between the hero and villain, and about the legacy he left. Then, you will go to downtown Medellin and walk Parque San Antonio, where you will see a Botero’s sculpture called Pajaro de Paz (Bird of Peace) made with the remains of a previous sculpture that was blown up by the FARC in 1995 killing 23 people. Even though this was not a terrorist attack by Pablo Escobar, it is the kind of terror he spread and taught to others. You will still see the remainings of the first sculpture to remind people what happened that day and commemorate the victims. You will experience how art and urbanism are put together to support collective memory and stimulate optimism and progress.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Comuna 13 Graffitour, La Independencia No. 1 Barrio, Medellín, Antioquia, Colombia

To conclude this tour, you will go to Comuna 13 a “slum” that once was the most dangerous neighborhood in Medellín. It was a strategic corridor for drug-lords in the 80’s so it was an area full of conflict and violence. Here, you will be able to see how much this community has evolved through social and urban innovation, giving them hope, a new chance in life, and so much more. One of the greatest examples of this is the famous outdoor escalators that were built back in 2011 to connect the community. The 30 minutes climb was reduced to a 5 minutes ride improving the life quality for the inhabitants. Thanks to this, the complicated social dynamics of what once was another slum, gradually turned into a brighter panorama.
The electric escalator will take you up to a platform from where you will get another stunning view of Medellín from above. Taking a closer look, you’ll notice amazing street art everywhere: colorfully painted roofs and drawings on the walls, from talented street artists who have sealed with paint and spays the violent past of the comuna. As soon as you finish the tour, you will be taken back to your hotel so you can enjoy the rest of your stay in the marvelous City of Eternal Spring.

Creating the next space at Soná, an 80 hectare of rainforest near San Carlos, where a group of like-minded individuals build with bamboo from the space of dwelling in nature. This means dwelling fully in nature - including bathing in crystal clear stream water, gathering in a circle of trees, sleeping in tree tents - being almost entirely outdoors. Each Generation explores how life can be an offering in the most fundamental ways, bringing reverence to the everyday. Participants add to the landscape and experiences at Soná, leaving their traces outwardly with bamboo creations and inwardly through personal transformation and connection.

Being immersed in tropical rainforest while building with bamboo and re-imagining the act of dwelling, involving:
* bamboo craft at a variety of scales;
* collaborative creation;
* connecting with inner rhythms of the self and the world;
* waking up at sunset from a tree tent;
* feeling revitalised with crystal clear stream waters and plant based nourishment;
* gathering for evening candle-lit circles and day-time movement practices; 
* taking wild walks into the rainforest;
* group discussions to do with observations, insights, readings; 
* cultivation of a sense of wonder ...

Dates:
25.07.19 - 16.08.19 will be spent in the rainforest.
Be sure to allow at least 2 days before and 1 day after for transport from Medellín and acclimatisation.
A bus will bring you to the rainforest near the town of San Carlos, where a 21 day experience of living in nature and building with bamboo will begin.

Accommodation + Food:
Tree tent accommodation will be provided for all participants. This heightens connection with nature, with the self and with others. 
All meals will be provided. These will be plant-based and provided in a kitchen immersed within the rainforest.

This opportunity will be most enjoyed by:
* designers with an interest in bamboo construction;
* lovers of adventure and the challenge of pursuit;
* creative individuals who thrive on collaboration; 
* nurturers of an attitude for contributing to life;
* seekers of meaning and inspiration towards purposeful living.
