The leaves of taro are edible if cooked. In Samoa they are baked with coconut milk and onions creating a pudding like dish called palusami. They are also cooked in Hawaii with a meat stuffing - kind of like stuffed grape leaves. Both are ve
ry tasty. The tuber provides one of the starch mainstays to the Polynesian diet.

Never been to Granada. Sounds like the kind of experience I would like. When I tried to snorkel at the Great Barrier Reef my mask kept filling with water and covered my nose so I had to empty it every ten to fifteen yards. Back on the
ship one of the crew gave me some Vaseline to put on my beard which then sealed the mask and left me float around without the leakage.

I was there in 2006 and we were able to ride in small boats being pulled by the Trackers. They must not be doing that now. Sorry!

What an amazing adventure. We are in California with our oldest children and their families--lots of laughs and never a dull moment. All the best. Gretchen

I took time to read this your update (work and gardening have 'busied' my life) and was very impressed with your physical ability to manage the climb, but also your ability to sense the imazing power in that location. I'm glad that you are
taking the time to enjoy!

So many adventures! And a police car, too!!!!! I imagine now there is a new legend of a woman with tireless energy who could walk the planet if bridges connected the sea! From your perch high up on the planet do you se actual mountains?
Are they beautiful? The whole world wants to know. Keep on trekking!
