Day 262am – Beatriz’s finca, Salento

We meet a fabulous lady Beatrix and her nephew Carlos through Piere at our hostel and they invite us along with Antonia and Piere to visit their dairy farm in the Valle de Cocora. The house has been in the family for 50 years and nothing has changed, straight out of a magazine furnished with rustic rural furniture. They have 80 cows which are milked daily and the fresh milk sold to a local cheesemaker. We are shown around the stunning property and get to taste a local juice made from Lolu fruit. Beatriz used to live in London for 15 years and invites us to bring our friends and come back and stay next time we travel back to Colombia…might just have to make a special trip back here one day..seems 3 1/2 weeks is just not long enough.
