A wonderful outdoor activity for the family!

Last year we toured Sinas juice production facilities, bakery, and animal farm. This year we had the pleasure of visiting those places and his beautiful produce farm and school. The school and farm sit on top of a steep hillside.

We climbed to see Gerard Sinas gardens and his school. It was a hike through paradise. We climbed about a mile and a half at a mile above sea level, which means we we're two miles above sea level in total. Some people let the bus take them up. The trekking group followed a dirt path that trucks and many people walk up and down daily to bring down fruits and vegetables to the production facilities at the base of the hill. Rwandans are slender and healthy because they walk a lot. Even if they have an office job they are usually walking to and from the office, or walking for a lunch break, walk for errands. I digress We saw a handful of people carrying buckets of Rwandan strawberries down the dirt path. They looked very similar to our wild strawberries. These berries we're not completely ripe. Later, I was in the strawberry patch and I tried one of the greener strawberries and it was still sweet. I was shocked! I thought it was going to be bitter like our unripened strawberries back home, but no. The strawberry was very edible, just not as tender as a juicy red, ripe, berry.

Sidebar! Hoping to help alter the style with my own website. Opinions on the design of Honestly a fantastic Calgary based optometrist online when required in the whole Alberta location. Leave a comment. With thanks!

Our first stop on our ascent was Sinas school. It is free to school children from pre-school through high school. In traditional Rwandan fashion, we we're welcomed with songs and smiling faces. We introduced ourselves and then we sang a song for them, too.

We walked a bit father and then jumped on the bus so we could save some time. It wasnt long until we reached the top of the steep hill and saw a plethora of vegetables and fruits in gardens draping the hill top. There we're strawberries, beans, cabbage, concord grapes, passion fruit, banana, apples, and macadamia trees! I'm sure I didn't see everything because we we're only there for a short time, but what I did see was healthy and lush.

***In-the-Moment Eve Words***

I am standing on top of the hill in the middle of gardens breathing in fresh, cool air. There are rolling hills all around me with a bright blue sky stretching overhead, and clouds like canopies hanging right above the land. Sun warms my skin and the breeze cools it. I feel the sweat from the hike starting to evaporate from my brow. That hike felt great! I feel free. I feel so happy up here! This is pure joy. Blood pumping, heart fulfilling joy. I look around and see everyone smiling and taking photos with plants. Candace sat down with the cabbage. She is a Cabbage Patch kid.

Our last visit was Sinas cow pasture. How lovely to be a cow on top of that hill! All cows we're fat, happy, and lively. They had plenty of green grass to munch. The people who took care of the cows treat them with respect because they bring so much to the community. I'll talk more of this respect when I write about the cow distribution in the Muhanga district.

Thx people! I actually told my pal we could list this staggering promotional products shop in Calgarys, during a new post. In case you are hoping to get a promotional products shop around the Alberta location, these folks have been very good.

Lastly, I really must remark the base concept for this article had been given via Kelly at BeaconSeniorAdvisors. They absolutely are a splendid senior placement services. We invariably love a great proposal!
