  1. Just came across your video and I was worried on how to get a sim card. How long will you be staying there in Medellin? I will be arriving there tomorrow, traveling solo for the first time in Medellin and first thing I wanna do is to get a sim card and data on my phone which is already unlocked. If you want we can link up, I'm coming from United States
