Day 2: From Seed to Cup

For our first day in G-Mal, we were awoken at around 6:30 to the sound of blasting music of “Lady in Red”. Apparently it’s a custom for our neighbors to wake up really early and start blasting the music. We also discovered where all the old music hits go once they’re taken off the U.S. radio. We met with our guide Steven, and went next door for breakfast. One of the farmers (and his family) of the “As Green as it Gets” organization had prepared for us tortilla’s and bread. After breakfast we met up with Filiberto, who took us up into the fields where we learned the entire process of coffee making. Due to time restraints in the internet cafe, I will not be able to finish the full description of the entire day. So Tune in tomorrow night for full details!! Hasta Luego!

    I was wondering where all those old music hits went to. I wonder what tomorrow’s selection will be. Have fun!

    Thanks for sharing about your trip! I am going to share the blog throughout the week with my students. The bathroom situation does not sound like fun.

    Believe it or not, you may even begin to adjust to the bathroom situation by the end of the week. But you’ll still be thankful to return to what you are used to. šŸ™‚ We do take a lot for granted.
