El Salvador Travels 2009

Some various images of the side-trips I took when attending the 2009 El Salvador Cup of Excellence. I had some time with Aida Batlle at her farms, and then after the competition I was able to go with Vickie Dalton to Matalapa farm and her El Paraiso mill. I also had time in the cultivar garden, which was great!
