Nik & the kids learning just where those cocao beans come from. And, we got a taste of the nibs. Yuck! How someone thought to make something from these beans is beyond me. Genius for sure. These pods hold like 40 beans inside I think they said. May have heard that wrong. These pods are so, so big. I truly was shocked. And, they still collect & dry them all by hand still as they have done for years. Amazing.
Can you believe just how big this cocao pod is from the trees?! It was huge!
Do you think he enjoyed this part of the trip?
Don't know what happened to Alex's hair. His candy bar. Of course totally filled as much as possible w/ marshmellows.
Now, is that a look of satisfaction or what? This was right after he ate the candy bar.
Another beautiful day on vacation. In the back of this picture is a tower. The thing in the middle goes up & day and has hershey kiss windows for people to look at the view of the city. I would have loved to have gone up it but think it was in the amusement part of the park. Not sure really. Looked really cool to do but was very short time they stayed at the top.
Picture of the bunch. Sorry it was blurry. Alyona wanted to keep her chocolate lab apron and hair net on.
