Two international news organizations
carried pieces about Medellín recently.
The Guardian piece is long and nicely nuanced,
with lots of interesting background information.
The NPR story is much shorter and personal
and has some interesting photos.
What I like is that neither swallows whole
the miraculous transformation angle of the story
that Medellín’s civic leaders often want to highlight:
yes, Medellín has done wonderfully well in tackling its problems,
but it has a long way to go before all its citizens live securely.Share this post:
