This post is a bunch of random photos I took while out and about in Medellín over the last few months. Most of the photos were taken at the grocery store, or on the way to/from the grocery store, because that was pretty much the only time I was out of the house. Several of the photos were taken from the balcony of my first apartment in Medellín. Each of these photos gives a little insight into what self-isolation has looked like in Medellín, Colombia, through my eyes, thus far.

But when I am feeling up for it, I read, write, study Spanish, cook vegan meals, and meditate. From getting the opportunity to stay in a country safer than the one I’m from, to all this extra time to do things I will not have time to do if a 40 hour work week is still in my future, I am privileged!
Last week should have been my first full week as a full-time English teacher in Medellín, Colombia. But it wasn’t. It was my first full week in quarantine instead.
Here I am, doing something I do a lot of these days, eating. Eating a tostada. This is not just any tostada though, this is a very special tostada… Let me explain…
Through all of these life changing experiences, I have been given countless recommendations for countless things, over half of which I couldn’t recall now if you paid me. Yet, for some reason, when the focus of my travels turned to studying Spanish, I remembered that brief, hungover, conversation with the Canadian dude in Bangkok.
The truth is, even knowing how easy it is to be vegan in Guatemala, even a healthy, satisfied vegan, on a budget, I’m still going to all the bougie vegan restaurants, all the time. They scream privilege.
