As my time in Medellin was drawing to a close, I wanted to make the most of the salsa dancing opportunities.
Earlier in the week, I’d gone out to El Eslabon Prendido for the last time, though I didn’t get to dance too much because it was way too crowded.
I love the music and atmosphere there, but they need to have a few less chairs and tables or somehow limit the number of people. But I digress.
Thursday night, I went to Cien Fuegos for a group salsa lesson, and then headed to GAR Bar in Parque Lleras to meet up with Astrid, Andrea, Lina, Martin, Johana, and others. We actually had a really big turnout.
I drank a bunch of delicious mojitos and caipirinhas, which were possibly my last in Colombia for a while.
I found out from Astrid that Cien Fuegos was hosting a party that night as a kickoff to Colombia’s Salsa Congress which was occurring over the weekend.
Update: As of 2013, GAR Bar no longer offers live salsa on Thursdays.
