hey! So good to hear from you !!!! I hope that you and fam are doing well. I think of you guys all the time. WHAT HAPPEN TO HORST AND SHARON?> I dont have cell service where i live and was never able to get through to them, and their e-mails wont go through! UGH! I'm really concered. hows business? I'm leaving for india in novemeber, want some tea and coffee??????
Hmm.. we'll I'd love to go, always fancied Guatemala (hot chocolate too!), but the flights are ludicrous from the UK - I'd have to find one which DOESN'T stop over in the US for various reasons, which will cost me even more no doubt. Its a choice between an £850 flight via Spain and Mexico, or a cheaper, but 27 hour flight London-Toronto-Mexico City-Guatemala.... eeps.
More to the point though, I am actually heading out to Nicaragua in November and Costa Rica in January, for my coffee-research at the university. The uni are paying for the flight - woohoo!! So if you guys organise any trips then, I can border-hop and meet you there actually in guatemala maybe! That would be amazing!! (I'm away from home and husband for four months, so company would be great!).
How serious are you about going? How serious do you reckon the others are?
Yeah, "curious" is a good word to indicate how we're approaching this. I don't even have an opinion just yet..... still trying to pick my jaw up off the floor. In the end, it still really all comes down to the quality of the coffee. Hopefully this will somehow work out to be good for the entire industry.
