What a beautiful place ! It has been a real treat to stay here, see all the interesting crops, the flowers and the birds and the food is just wonderful. I would love to try cooking it at home, but sadly, we have no banana flowers. I will certainly make the paratas. Thank you so much for your hospitality.
