Today was spent around the San Diego area learning about sugar cane. It is a primary source of employment and income for several families that live in San Diego. With approximately 50 acres it is tough business when only half of your crop is irrigated and the other half depends on the rain. This has a been a good rainy season which has been great for the crops.
After the sugar plantation, we went to Los Cardones which is one of my most favorite places in the entire world. It is an ecolodge that strives for sustainability with community development, saving sea turtles as well as being a great surf spot. The food is organic, fresh and absolutely delicious!!! We spent the afternoon relaxing, playing on the beach and enjoying the beautiful view.
