I am an active person, I love art, languages, music, culture of all worlds and fun. Everything I do with perseverance and respect. If you allow me I can help you to know everything in Medellin, even if you have special affinity for some places or preferred environments I will always be open to locate them, help them and have fun in my city. It is a beautiful city full of colors, flavors and different and surprising places. I am pleasantly committed to changing the mis-sold idea that some people have about my country, although I can not lie and hide the dark and battered part of the war that my country suffers (I will show some sculptures and museums that show figures and faces of the Colombian war) I will show and show the biodiverse culture of Colombia, its beautiful landscapes and its cheerful and enterprising people. I hope to offer you the best of mine, but above all of my country to make you feel welcome and as if you were in your second home
