Why Are You Telling Us This?

Because after driving through the countryside of Apostoles and Obera for the last two days, I feel that I have to pass along what I learned...

1. This is a field of tea plants. You can tell because to harvest the tea leaves you scalp the top of the plants flat.

2. Not to be confused with the fields of yerba (mate) plants which are allowed to grow naturally. The leaves and stems are harvested keeping the round shape and trunk of the Yerba intact.

We now have no excuse for ever mistaking a tea field with a Yerba field! This is just one example of how the mission is expanding Diane's and my knowledge!!
