Because of the terrible weather we did not even attempt to go to the volcano. Instead our terrific guide, Jorge, suggested a visit to the Doka coffee farm - it was fantastice, we absolutely loved it! Then we visited a couple of smaall towns in the valley where we saw how the craftsmen build and paint ox carts, realyy interesting. Had lunch there too - excellent!!
