Guatemalan Papayas
A Greek philosopher once said: The man who seats in front of his vineyard and does not contemplate happiness, is incapable of being happy.

There is an area of Guatemala called by locals “El Huerto de Centroamerica” Central America’s vegetable garden, responsible for producing a big part of the vegetables eaten in Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador.
