My Top Five Places in Medellín (1): El Tesoro

El Tesoro is the glitziest of Medellín's many shopping malls. It is also a long way from where I live, which adds to the sense that it is a special, golden place. I sometimes go on a Saturday afternoon, enjoy the ride to the other side of town, have a little wander around and have coffee and cake, sometimes in my 'own' café.I look out at the sky and the view over the city...
...listen to the sample CDs at Tower Records, and get the metro home. I always lower the tone terribly, in my scruffy jeans and trainers, but being unfailingly polite, no Colombian would ever mention it.
