Colombia - Singapur Farm, Honda and La Dorada

Leaving the coffee region behind we travelled 8 hours Northeast taking us near the Cordillera Central region about halfway towards Bogota. A work colleague and friend Alejandro grew up near here, and we was kindly given an invitation to spend a few days on his family farm with his family. After spending the night in the pretty town of Honda, also called the city of bridges we headed to the farm.  We took a bus 30 minutes north to La Dorada, from there we took a jeep taxi 90 minutes along a dusty track to a small community of 1000 people called San Miguel. Judging by the warm welcome we recieved from the local children it felt that we was the first Europeans to make it this far. Singapur farm is close to this village and is set among stunning scenic rivers and hills with mountains in the background.

We spent 3 nights on the farm, and spent the days riding horses, milking cows, bathing in the local river, lazing in hammocks and cooling off in the swimming pool. It was so nice to catch up with our reading and to do very little. All of Alejandro's family made us feel so welcome, we were spoilt and we will take many happy memories of Singapur farm and Colombia back to Europe with us. If any of our other colleague's follow us here beware its hard to leave. After leaving the farm, taking many mosquito bites with us we spent one night in La Dorada before taking a bus the next morning to Bogota.
