The King of Spain, Queen Elizabeth II of England, and President Obama have dined from, or received as a gift, the hand-painted pottery of the village, Carmen de Bivoral. So why shouldn't our first sag stop of the day be at the factory where it's made?
We left Luz-Marina's hotel, which was hard to do. This place feels like home. Denise and I shared a nice evening in the kitchen with the proprietor last night over a glass of wine. We feel as though we are old friends and were surprised at the small-world connections we discovered!
We have arrived and are filled with as much anticipation tonight as a child on Christmas Eve. Denise stated tonight as we tucked ourselves into bed: "It's better than I ever imagined!" Already.
Every once in a while, I come across an opportunity that I just can't resist. This time, we're building a cycling trip in the Andes Mountains of Colombia.
Stretch your body, mind and soul. Time to ride hard, relax by the pool and reflect in the beautiful setting.
