Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,
Here in Medellin, Christmas seems to be all about the lights. They're draped everywhere--on palm trees, pine trees, lampposts, doorways, highway signs, shop entrances, park benches...
Driving back into the city last night after our day in the mountains in El Retiro, it was like entering fairy land. Parque Poblado is ablaze with strings of white lights, and the river is lined with elaborate recreations of Christmas scenes (reindeer, elves, gingerbread houses) created from lights of every color.
