    Thank you, Russ. What those ladies are doing can be seen as fascinating as well, or depressing to some extent: During low tide, they are wading through the sea water, even chin-deep, and harvest seaweed. That is then filled into these large sacks, carried to a trading place and sold. Through what I would assume is a multi-tier trading channel to cosmetics companies that make some supposedly juvenating skin cream “with real algae” and sell it for USD 200 per fl oz.
    Well, coffee and cocoa are not much different, I guess.
