(Almost) Wordless Wednesday

I spent the last week in Berlin, Germany, attending executive meetings of the International Federation of Agricultural Journalists. We were hosted by International Green Week, the world's largest food, agriculture and horticulture show.

The show features exhibitors from around the world, and many selling food and showcasing the agricultural specialties of their part of the world.

Here are a few sights... More to come in future blog posts...

This lovely German potato farmer seemed thrilled that I came to visit his booth in the agricultural section of International Green Week. He proudly told me that they had 420 varieties of potatoes on display.

Guess which country had the large tulip display? Holland, of course.

Pakistan's booth had a heavy emphasis on food traceability and food safety.

These guys didn't appear very impressed with International Green Week.

Gorgeous pics, Allison! Looks like you had a great trip. Will look forward to reading more about it.

No wonder I'm not big of German food! Can't say the potato is one of my fav food groups.

Cheers and Happy New Year!
