Our Nicaragua Trip to My Father.
Well, last week Sun to Wed Jan 21 - Jan 25, I went with my husband and 12 others, ( all men but me mind you) went to the My Father factory in Esteli, Nicaragua. WHAT AN AMAZING PLACE!!! We met up with Jose Ortega. Traveling fromDetroit to Miami, then to Managua to Esteli, planes, buses...WOW! The My Father factory I feel is one of the best run places on this earth. Don Pepin Garcia, Jamie Garcia really know what they are doing. Don Pepin took a liking to me right away, being the only female of the group had it's perks, receiving a Ligero leaf straight from the field was fantastic, making me cry like a girl! Also while touring the factory in the aging room he gave me two Lacero cigars straight from the shelf. Which I WILL NEVER smoke! giggles. The fields were beautiful beyond belief, so lush and green. We were there early in the growing season so we were not able to see the drying process in the barns. I will try and post pictures
