We hope that you enjoyed learning about the parts of Vanilla over the weekend. We are so happy that you could join us this week! Did you know that the beautiful flowers of the Vanilla plant bloom for only 2-3 hours? That is what the Totonac people found out about her centuries ago. They did not yet know that she was sweet and aided those who were weakened by digestion or fever. If you will turn to page 21, you can follow a group of hunters on their journey to discover the properties of Vanilla. What have you discovered about her? Let us know in the comments section below or on our facebook page. We are sure that your friends would love to hear more about Vanilla too. Share this story and your discoveries with them!
