Rovira Colombia With Juliana

What an experience for a 12 year old from England to visit her family in a small town in Colombia. And happened to be the same time I was staying in Rovira.
I have known Juliana since she was only 6 months old and was a pleasure to share a wonderful week with her and her family.
