The Palma de Cera (Wax Palm) is the national tree of Colombia. The palms live more than 100 years, but as you can see there are no baby palm trees. Unless they figure out what is happening, they will become extint. Ok, framing probably does not help them :)

People hanging out in parque Bolivar in Medellin. From Wikipedia: "This urban space is a symbolic site of the city, with historical and cultural symbolism, which the different generations as one of the main meeting places." Nowadays, it is not a place to visit at night, and even during the day there are lots of questionable characters around.
