Guapte, Colombia

After my 50th high school reunion, I visited a friend who had retired to Guapte, Colombia, a small town outside of Medellin. Here are some photos of the homes. People paint images that depict the family’s work or story. The government partially subsidizes the paint. It’s expensive because it must weather nearly six months per year of rain!

I must confess, I enhanced the photos a bit. I increased the contrast settings to make the colors pop a bit more than in real life. It’s a hilly village, so many streets are on angles.
