We saw fields of sugar cane and some beautiful volcano's. Antigua is known as one of the best preserved Spanish Colonial towns in Central America.
Thick jungles are here also. I can't imagine what it takes to clear away these areas.
Dennis Hadley of Taylor had come here 50 years ago on his mission, that is when costa rica
was included. He said it had not changed a bit.
Here too, its rainy 6 months and not rainy the other.
Because of the many large earthquakes they had to change it.
Inside see the colorful orange fake florals.
That was a bit entertaining and efficient.
Usually there are alot of small motorcycles to get them places.
Jade is big industry, jewelry is made and sold here. The lands are rich in gems.
a target for the vendor...its like swarms... is the only way to think of it. After awhile you have to pretend your sleeping. Probably the most annoying time on the whole trip.
I dont know how the women carry the stuff so heavy all day everyday and walk on the streets.
the parents go to jail even prison if their child doesn't go to school.
Cacao chocolate is big industry here
Tiny choco shop they make their own bars and goods here to sell.
shows how the cacao bean is rolled
store close by smelling so good
fresh breads and I loaded up on my diet coke.
Just a tip..the cruise boat wants 20.00 a day for all the coke you can drink...
I say give me a break, not going to do it!
You could buy a 20 oz. for 1.00 or 1.50
I'm guessing most of the products I saw on the streets are made in china.
a friendly vendor who followed us to the bus...very determined
it paid off, some jumped off the bus to buy!
countries on the trip. would also have loved to go traveling around the many volcano's and to have seen more of the crops and the capital.
Because so many still can't read, they buy up N.American school buses and paint them certain colors so they know which bus to catch by the color. This is true in the other countries as well.
This is probably a very big deal to have santa on his sleigh.
