The trip to the farm was horrendous and terrifying.  Maria Lena drove wildly with Sherri, Dennis and Bruno and it was like a terrifying carnival ride, except there was real danger

The farm hosts were absolutely gracious and unforgettable. Gardens, workers, maids, horse handlers and wonderful greetings

Vaqueiro's showed off the ponies and horses to Sherri and Gary.  The farm was primarily for cattle and coffee
