Sierra madre lands, exotic, tropical greens.
Fresh coffee fragrance from the Amatepec volcano.
Quetzals gliding above dense cloud forest.
Campesinos embarked on their survival struggle.
Homemaking mothers tending their daily instinct rituals of next meal.
Down the slopes, wild flowers and lush adorn the children in their journey to school.
They carry tortillas and water for lunch.
Mangos picked to add to their later nutrition as they are abundant along the trails.
Water spouts from nearby creek blend with crying monkeys.
The thick clouds ascend to higher altitudes as the heat of the sun plays its role.
The never ending field work for tomorrow’s meal begins and the Tucan’s bright green, red, yellow, and black colors are a reminder of our beautiful Central American land.
