Today was a free day for us, as Spanish school starts tomorrow. After checking in with the school this morning, we headed over to the market to pick up some fruits & veggies. Most items at the market are cheaper than they are at the grocery store.
Grenadas, pictured below, are delightful little fruits even though the inside looks like snot. It is similar to a pomegranate, in that you eat the seeds. We had some for lunch... yum! I look forward to trying many new fruits in the next few weeks.
After lunch we took a siesta (afternoon nap!). Later in the afternoon we went down to Choco Museo where I attended a chocolate workshop called "Bean to Bar". We learned about the different steps involved in making chocolate and got to do some hands-on activities.
I've dabbled in making truffles and other chocolates before, so this workshop piqued my interest. The chocolate made here in Antigua has a different, stronger flavor than any chocolate I've had. Their dark chocolate is especially flavorful. Hubs and I also sampled some cacao tea, made from the outer shell of cacao beans. It reminded me of Coco Wheats. :)
We finished out the day at Pollo Campero, similar to Kentucky Fried Chicken. I relished my last night of "no hablo Espanol", for tomorrow I officially start Spanish school.
