The Origin of Chocolate and the Celebration of Indigenous Culture January 7 – 17th, 2011
Join us on an adventure to Ecuador and experience the wonders of one of our world’s most coveted treats – chocolate. We’ll visit cacao farmers and learn about the product of chocolate , pod to the port. No trip to Ecuador would be complete without time to revel in the spectacular landscape and vibrant indigenous cultures of the country so we’ll treat you to a few off-the-beaten path Ecuadoran treasures. We’ll stop for a night in Mindo where Michigan/Ecuadoran couple, Barbara and Jose, operate Mindo Chocolate (mindochocolate.com). The final days of our trip will be spent in the company of Miriam and Jamie Vasquez (and their families) who will host us in their rural indigenous community, Peguche, sharing their vibrant Kwiche culture and sharing their love for chocolate-making and entrepreneurship.
