Visit to the Rose Plantation / Factory

A highlight of the first day on the train was a trip to a Rose Plantation / Factory. The company is called Rosadex and they grow, package, and export roses all over the world - to at least 48 countries. They explained that this is an excellent place to grow roses because it is equitorial - good sunny weather with equal length days all year, and because the sun is directly overhead most of the time it helps the roses grow straight up. And the place also serves food, has a chapel, and I think people can stay there overnight.
