In Medellin we walk! No cars, no taxi just walk and the metro to get us in and out of our longer walks. We set our step goal at 12,000 steps per day which is about 5 miles. What a great work out at any altitude. Especially this one. Medellin sits at 1,495 meters which is just under 5,000 feet. We just stride on by the honking, noise of the motorcycles, trucks and taxis. Oh, and by the way. Do NOT expect them to stop for you while crossing in a crosswalk. Caroline jokes that she hears them step on the gas as we cross the streets.
