Það sem verður gert

I invite you to join me at dawn on a beautiful plantation in Sri Lanka, from where I’ll tell you the wonderful story of cinnamon, surrounded by cinnamon plants, with Rathu the cinnamon peeler beside me, and the sun rising slowly over the jungle behind us.
I’ll use a combination of live explanation and demonstration, accompanied by a variety of images, infographics and pre-recorded video clips.
First, we’ll look at what cinnamon really is, where it comes from and what fresh cinnamon smells and tastes like. Next, I'll run you through the colourful history of cinnamon from ancient times to the present day. With Rathu’s help, I’ll then show you how cinnamon is grown, harvested, peeled and made into quills for export around the world. Finally, we’ll consider the various health benefits, uses and abuses of cinnamon (some more than a little surprising). You’re welcome to ask questions at any time.
By the end of the experience, you’ll know pretty much everything there is to know about this popular spice and have a first-hand impression of the daily life of a cinnamon farmer in Sri Lanka.
We're about 12 hours ahead of you in the USA and have timed the experience to coincide with your end of the day so that, whilst it may be a wintry evening outside, you can gaze at our sunrise over the jungle, feel the tropical warmth and enjoy the dawn birdsong.

I am a British expat living for many years on a cinnamon plantation in southern Sri Lanka, where we farm, process and export Ceylon cinnamon. I’ve learnt a lot about the fascinating subject of cinnamon and want to share this with people around the world. You'd be surprised how much there is to see and discover!

Rupert had a great set up - both setting and some informative slides. He fielded all of our questions. We had a few laughs as well. I went into this having no expectations about what I was going to see/learn, but Rupert & his team really did a top notch video presentation. It was also great to see the sunrise in another part of the world. A great way to grab your friends from around the world, meet virtually, and learn something new. Highly recommend!

This was my fist Airbnb experience. It was so cool and super educational. A great way to “travel” without traveling. Rupert was a fantastic host. Highly recommend.

Fascinating experience... definitely learned a lot and have a whole new appreciation for how cinnamon is grown and harvested as well as the different types of cinnamon and it's uses. Wonderful host and live demo from Ratu the expert cinnamon peeler was fascinating too. We all enjoyed it very much. Thank you so much!

This was a fantastic date night. We paired some cinnamon treats with the event and thoroughly enjoyed everything. Rupert is charming, the scenery stunning, and the information fascinating. I would worry that I'm setting the bar too high with a glowing review, but not really sure that's possible. We heard monkeys and saw exotic birds in the background, and are happy to go forward with a better understanding of cinnamon's growth, harvesting, and the applications of its different varieties. For rounding out the winter months in chilly Minnesota, it was the perfect tropical getaway.

I learned a lot about Cinnamon! Not only did I learn how the cinnamon came from, but I also enjoyed the nice scenic of Sri Lanka. This session was very eye opening. After this experience, I appreciate cinnamon more (especially TRUE cinnamon!). Highly recommended!
