Transient–The Colombian Trail

While visiting Medellin, one of Colombia’s famous cities, we had a chance to explore a coffee farm and the Metrocable. Both experiences bring transient elements – captured in the photos below, as per the Daily Photo Challenge…

Most of us know about the famous Colombian coffee, however it is worth mentioning that it is a very labour intensive crop to produce, process and bring it to the cup (yes, a transient process ). The coffee farm was just 5 min outside the city of Medellin up the rolling hills and it was very authentic. The farmer shared with us the process of coffee growing, processing, selecting and marketing, as well as its many challenges . It was very educational and fun experience, indeed!

Only the right size and colour beans make it to the world markets as premium coffee (the white bag). The rest of the beans (the yellow bucket) are further processed to make instant coffee types.

 

The Mertocable is the best way to see the poorest (most dangerous, according to some) parts of the city from the safety of a cable car – yet another transient moment.
