Long May It Continue

This has to be too good to be true… Yesterday the renters arrived in the Finca de Recreo alongside us, and it was obviously going to be one hell of a bash, they put up screening at the back so we couldn\’t see, well it certainly wasn\’t to block out the noise! Then the partyContinue reading “Long May It Continue”

Oh Dear!

Well that\’s another week-end we are glad to see the back of! No help whatsoever from the Alcaldía de Copacabana, or the Policía Nacional to control the noise from the Finca de Recreo. The Alcalde / Mayor moved the Fiestas de Naranja from the end of the year to July yet again to avoid theContinue reading “Oh Dear!”

Trouble at The Finca de Recreo

Sunday night wasn\’t much better, the music varied in volume throughout the night, but Monday being a Bank Holiday, didn\’t bring a lot of change, Marcela spoke with a Patrol on duty at the Station, over the phone, he said a patrol had been the previous evening, but stated the volume was not that high,Continue reading “Continuing Problems!”

What a Day!

What a day indeed! The music from the Finca de Recreo started about 1pm yesterday, and continued, at the start it was at a reasonable level, but as more people arrived to join the party, the louder it got.I started recording evidence before midnight, and then at midnight we had fireworks, then again at 2amContinue reading “What a Day!”

A Serious Case of Man Flu!

The last twenty four hours haven\’t been that brilliant, yet another Colombian National Fiesta week-end, there are people at the Finca de Recreo nearest to us. I wouldn\’t mind, but they had the music volume at a considerate level all evening, then when I was ready for bed, they boosted the volume, and it stayedContinue reading “A Serious Case of Man Flu!”
