The Benedictines had explored the land with coffee, exploitation of firewood and charcoal, and with the fall of coffee, cattle. Hence the hills became pastures and there was no trace of the surrounding rainforest. (...)
The soil in the plain was drained, and the ants exterminated all. And there were mosquitoes, unexpected tropical floods. Need to do redo the soil and persist. Struggle against all Finns to find products possible to plant in the ground worked: corn, sweet potatoes, vegetables, bananas and even flowers.
