What is the Medellin Buzz?

I, Andrew Macia, started the Medellin Buzz blog a few years ago as a way for my advanced level English students to practice reading at home. I wanted them to have something to read that wasn’t boring and that was about their own city. 

I love to write and I have a pretty active life, therefore, it was the perfect marriage.

Today, I no longer teach English because my digital marketing agency takes up most of my time. But I still like to discover Medellin and write about it.

My intention with the Medellin Buzz is to provide a fun source for English as a second language students to practice reading and to inform those that are not from Medellin about this amazing city I now call home. Also, I’d like it to be a look at my life in Medellin for anyone wanting to travel to Medellin.
