La Cumbre is the name Denise's family gives to the mt. cabins outside La Antigua.  The road used to be rutted and dirt and mainly just a way for indigenous people to get to town or to other villages.  It has been paved, and much easier to get to these remote villages which are pretty much the same as they have always been.  While we were waiting for the chickens to get smoked, we hiked all over and saw the land that Jim and Denise have purchased.  We got hungry and Norbeto (Denise's dad) sent for fresh hot tortillas made by one of his farm worker's wife.  In fact, we sent for fresh hot tortilla's about 3 times!  MUY BUENO!
