1. I have been to Agua Prieta many times.

There is an area near the border that isn't too bad, but when you head south,
the poverty and problems are very evident. My friend and I would drive though AP
on the way to the little village of Cabullona where we hired a local farmer to
plant ancient corn in his fields.

edit to add: the name of the ancient corn is chapalote:

My buddy, Jon Wick, got the seeds from Native seed search. He was written up in
Al Jazeera of all places, as a horticulturalist. I think of him as the sax player in
our band.
