This day was the highlight of a six month trip. We'd driven out of town into the lush green valleys of the Colombian countryside to lunch at a finca - El Arca Verde. We found the perfect rustic idyll - a handmade, eco farmhouse surrounded by nothing but hills. But we soon learned the pitfalls of eating al fresco - fending off three hungry horses which were employed as lawnmowers! After lunch, a friend responded to my nagging request to play her violin. On hearing the notes emanate from the kitchen, one of the horses ambled in and became completely transfixed!
