Tomato Farm

Saturday, September 21st, 2013

Here are some photos of a tomato farm trip today. I know, I got no many tomatoes photos, they are out of season but I did find interesting things around.
This plantation is very close to my house, a short 30 minutes bike ride (an hour if you don’t have the right directions).
Oh, there is a giant 500 hundred years old Ceiba at the plantation. One of the owners tells me it is a Ceiba Costarrisence -Costa Rican Ceiba- but I was trying to find that species online but I did not find it.

Shuco

I know, you all have seen these on the streets of Guatemala.
These are Shucos: a lightly toasted hotdog bun, with chopped (your choice of) beef, marinated meats, Spanish sausage, chorizo, sausage or a mix of them all, topped with steam cabbage, ketchup, mustard or mayo.
You won’t have trouble finding them here in Guatemala city.
By the way, I made this one my self.
