Nothing marks the beginning of the Holiday season better than the incessant crack of fireworks. If you’re in Medellin from the end of November, through the holiday season, you are bound to get an earful of the loud bangs that sing through the city completely randomly through the night. I, personally, am totally over it. I’m not sure what exactly is the fascination with lighting off the exact same bottle rockets that only fly in the air with a small bit of sparkle, and then gives off three loud cracks. Of course, there is the occasional one that only gives off one tremendous BANG-followed by three or four old men cursing. For one night, or one weekend, I think it’s great! For almost two months straight (and right now I’m only two weeks into it) I think it’s just a little too much. Happy Holidays Medellin…I’m just glad the beautiful lights more than make up for the annoying fireworks!
