Mio freedom

16Jul12

Cali’s relatively new public transit system, the Mio, runs right outside of our housing complex. Our Spanish tutor took us on a field trip last week, explaining the ins and outs of Mio travel and giving me a little boost of confidence with regard to exploring Cali on my own. Expat views on city safety vary widely. I have been told not to walk the city streets at all and have been shown some pretty fabulous rough-around-the-edges markets. I don’t plan on heading into the rougher parts alone or after dark, but I do hope to explore my new city in its’ many forms, as best I can. I won’t wear gold or carry a fancy bag, and I am not known for a tidy appearance… so hopefully I won’t attract too much attention.

Our quiet and tidy little complex, with a view of the Farallones:

Me and Edu ventured out on the Mio alone today. We recharged our bus passes and came home with groceries. Freedom!

    The craziest part is that those little mountains in the back yard are twice the elevation of Whistler.
