Hola from beautiful Ecuador,
Today has been full of excitement as we started the day by tasting Miriam and Mimi´s fantastic eucalyptus truffles (WOW) I can honestly say I´ve never had anything like it. We said tearful goodbyes to Miriam and Luiz and headed back to Quito with a dear friend (local Ecuadorian woman) who is helping us locate sources (ingredients) for Miriam.Tomorrow, we will travel five hours to stay with a cacao plantation owner who appears to have excellent potential as a source.
Riding in the back of a pick-up truck is becoming second nature now. It´s kind of like riding a bike – it´s all coming back to me and I love it! Tomorrow we´ll put our backsides to the test when we travel south in the back of a truck…we all agree that we´re up for the adventure and after a full-recovery from Montezuma´s revenge (which I am so glad that mi amiga Jody made public on the blog 🙂 I am up for anything.
So stay tuned my friends. The adventure continues and trust me when I say, you are all with us. We are stockpiling chocolate for our return trip so we can share a little taste of Ecuador.
