One outing was to a spice plantation. Seeing and tasting nutmeg, mace, vanilla, turmeric, chilis, cardamon, cinnamon, cloves and lemongrass in the raw (versus bottled on a rack) was worth the hot hike. Plantings also included cassava, taro, banana, orange, mango, passion fruit, jackfruit and coffee.
