Stripping bark

The top photos show Antonio and Alex stripping bark by hammering the logs. We also used a machete, which was great for the drier logs.
The middle picture shows Antonio spreading out the raw coffee beans to dry in the sun: The views of the surrounding mountains are gorgeous!
The bottom phot shows us in the kitchen, just before lunch. Leticia cooks three meals a day, with rice and beans (Gallo Pinto) present at every meal. Leticia uses produce from her garden, and the food is delicious. She makes her own cheese from the milk the cows here on the farm yield. Antonio and I have both milked the cows, which is fun and not too hard to do!
