Today we traveled again to Tirimbina. Last night we visited for a bat tour. No post on that yet, I was so tired that I was asleep on the bus ride home. Tirimbina is a lodge and preserve with nature tours and hikes, but also, a sustainable chocolate plantation. So today we returned to learn more about the process of making chocolate. Best tour ever!
This is the cocoa plant. You can see the large seed pods, not yet ripe. They grow in the shade of the forest on do not require any deforestation or intensive land preparation.
There was no time to work on it today though. We had the afternoon to finish our project so that we can be ready to present tomorrow. I can't believe how quickly these last two weeks have flown by!
