Well, that's a special best-friends-relationship.
And then, in the middle of nowhere, I stumbled upon a little cow farm.
Look at these beauties! Those are wax palms and they're an endangered plant species. Valle de Cocora in Salento is one of the very few places where they're protected and taken care of. Such an amazing landscape, you'll definitely fall in love!
Bosque Nublado in Salento, Colombia. On the 5-hour walking round trip in Valle de Cocora nature seems to change with every step you take.

I am always so fascinated by exotic flowers. They have shapes and colours I have never seen before and grow in places where I wouldn't suspect them. This little beauty for example, grows in the middle of dark green trees and is the only bright red spot in between the branches.
This is how coffee beans look like when they're stillintheir fruity skin. The process to make coffee contains in peeling and then drying them, afterwards you remove the last bits of the bean's skin and then they can get roasted. In this final step they get that rich brown colour which you've already seen in my previous post :)
Brown gold. This is the best coffee I've ever tried. I went to Don Elias' coffee farm in Salento where they produce organic coffee in a small, family-run finca. I definitely recommend this one as they reall take their time to explain you everything and answer all of your questions.
So, this is a weird story. They found these statues in San Agustín, Colombia and have absolutely no clue about the people that built them. That people doesn't even have a name. They don't know when they lived, they don't know how they lived, they just found some artefacts like these statues that give little indication. I wonder what stories these statues have to tell...
