    We decided to go to Doka coffee plantation via taxi and we set out this am with Henri. What a coffee education we got! Melody has been trying to get decaf ever since we got off the ship, but with no luck. Today we learned why...there is very little decaf in the country (EXCEPT FOR INSTANT) because the beans are sent to Germany to be decaffeinated.
