Here is an update on the trip we took to Peru in May.
There were four of us (Randy, Mark, Iain and Julie)
La Grama’s avocado growers
Rodrigo Bedoya is one of the 3 founders of La Grama, and was kind enough to pick us up at our hotel in Lima at 6am Monday morning and drive us all the way to Moro to introduce us to some of the avocado growers he works with. It was a good 5 hour drive north, along the coast that gave us a chance to see some of Peru’s typical landscapes. We went through desert, desert, rice fields, desert, asparagus and cane sugar fields; and some more desert. At the end of a winding road in an arid valley where nothing but cactus grows Domingo Guzman’s and Jonan’s chakras (small farm) represent a pretty amazing avocado oasis.
