Right now, we are at “El Roble,” a farm above Cordoba in the Colombian state of Quindio. This region is famous for its coffee and giant bamboo. The farm belongs to one of Marcela’s high school friends. She was a dentist and her husband an economist. For retirement, they decided to run this farm at about 6,000 feet up in the Andes.
Earlier, we parked a few days at the place of good friends very near the Medellín international airport at Rionegro. There isn’t that much traffic, and we never got tired of watching the airplanes flying almost directly overhead during their final approach. Most interesting was noticing the air vortices coming through about half a minute after the plane passed.
