Part 4 of my report from Finca Tamana. Including an incident with the local Police:

After 4 days at Finca Tamana, I had to leave early morning on Friday to catch a plane from Neiva to Bogota. It turned out Avianca had cancelled my ticket, since I did not use my ticket from Bogota to Neiva. I got a bit upset to say the least and threw a bunch of brochures on the Avianca workers desk after some loud arguing. That lead to 2 hours of interrogation at the airport police office. They were about to take me to the DA’s office, but many thanks to the the local FNC (Colombian Coffee Growers Federation) who pulled some strings, I got out of the airport at 9.30am. Lesson learned! I had to hire a driver to drive me to Bogota, and because of traffic I barely made my plane to Paris, where I am now writing this blog post. But enough about my non-coffee adventures in Colombia.
