Fiesta at a Family Finca
A large BBQ with hot charcoals from native woods was being fanned by two family members. Cooking on the grill were thinly-sliced beef steaks and other delicacies, including sliced plantains.
With the smell of BBQ meat fading from the air surrounding the outdoor patio, lively conversation on all manner of topics transitioned to talk of an afternoon walk to the stream that ran through the property.
Off to one side of the property and down a steep, grassy incline, was a mountain stream surrounded by large, tropical plants and wild flowers.
Buffalo roamed the green hills in the back of the farm, which was also home to several horses that gazed at us lazily from their barn house stalls.
The farm dog, a large, gregarious puppy who seemed to be in a constant state of motion, chased a cat around the barn when he was not occupied with playing with family members roaming the property.
Life can be relaxed and laid back on the farm, especially when among loving family.
