Mawasi Finca

After leaving Bogotá, Stacey and I headed to the artistic community of Villa de Leiva, a colonial town in the department of Boyacá. We stayed with wonderful hosts, Bonnie and William, in a house that they have built with friends, 'Mawasi Finca', Mawasi meaning 'to have found a home from the earth'.

A beautiful setting lit by fireflies at night, Mawasi Finca was a great base from which to explore the surrounding area. Beginning the day with William's breakfasts and ending it with an outdoor shower under the stars was the perfect antidote to the city.

William is also a jeweller and creates pieces of jewellery using the lost wax technique.
