When we weren't out exploring with the Buettners, we were eating.....

 or, playing games.

Another stop we made was a rose plantation tour.  Roses are a huge export here.  We can buy 2 dozen for about $2.50!  So, it was super fun to tour the greenhouses and see rows and rows of roses.  Each greenhouse had 2 different colors.  They also grow them specifically for different countries and their likes.  For example, Russia likes the bulbs to be very large - so they put a netting on them so that they stay closed but grow larger.  Other countries like longer stems and others like certain colors at different times of the year.


  1. Is that Rummikub you guys were playing? We learned that game last year and loved it!
