Today, Kevin and I received some new friends to our home. A few weeks ago, I had gone to the honey/bee tour with our guests, Leanne and Drew. We had met William (the owner of Eco Miel), Javier (coffee plantation owner and operator) and Jodi (organic gardener and yoga teacher). We had talked about getting together to discuss the tourism possibilities in the area. Well, today was the day. We had all three plus Jodi's business partner, Felicia (salad dressing maker) over for a tour of our property and some lunch. Our friend, Seidy, joined us, too. The conversation was lively, half in Spanish, half in English (William speaks no English, Kevin and I speak very little Spanish, and the others speak enough of both that we were able to communicate).
I served a fresh trout Ceviche, squash and carrot soup topped with bread crumbs and Pepper Jack, then Shepherd's Pie with curry seasoning with a splash of gravy and salad on the side. Everything went down well, I think. Everyone seemed to enjoy it. We had to tear ourselves away from the table and the conversation... we could have talked into the evening... but Jodi had to get back to teach a yoga class and I had to prepare for my English class.
We'll be visiting Jodi's organic garden on Saturday with Leanne and Drew. They are at the end of their trip and have decided to spend their last weekend with us... we'll get to hear about all their adventures. We're looking forward to it!
