Among the work I helped with, which included loading 3,000 native trees into a truck at a vivero, or green-house, for reforestation projects in the reserve, we also ate some local food like cecina asado (thinly sliced, lime marinated, grilled to a crisp steak - very good!), and visited some of the tourist sites like the mirrador overlooking media luna (the mountain). I will be sure to come back to the reserve again!
p.s. An ongoing problem I will have in this blog is writing words with spanish accent marks. For example, Jalpan has an accent mark over the first A, so it is pronounced by stressing that syllable. Where are the damn accent marks on my keyboard?
