    ... about the cocoa plant and how to process the plant to make the chocolate and cocoa butter. They grind the cocoa beans until it becomes a liquid called cocoa mash. From there they separate the cocoa butter from the cocoa powder. We got to rub cocoa butter on our hands - smelled like chocolate and felt divine. When you buy lotion at home with cocoa butter it is nothing like this! Then they showed us the different kinds of chocolate: dark chocolate has 80% cocoa powder and ...

    ... whose birthday we were celebrating) and a few other coworkers. It was ladies' night so we were angling for discounts on the pizza. The pizza was good, but what I really enjoyed was the conversation. I met Maddie, who teaches the conversation club, and interrogated her on the ins and outs (which.. was honestly disappointing.

A private museum further north claims to show the actual line measured in the 90s with "US military GPS". They include a tour about indigenous people and their habits (including shrunken heads!) and semi-scientific experiments showing the difference on the hemispheres and the equator.

    Torrential Downpour - Round 2

    A travel blog entry by jackie.laba on Mar 02, 2015

    Aside from the two afternoon sessions instead of one, today has been pretty similar to last week. Along with the rain. As it had last week, it started to rain heavily while we finished our last class.
