It was during the weekends, on the holidays, and the long weekends that she would alternate between both places. Her Grandparents, on her father’s side, lived in Barichara, where they had a coffee plantation on the outskirts of the lovely town.
Her Grandmother, on her mother’s side, lived in San Gil in the heart of the peaceful city.
