Cacao May Have Spread from Amazonia to Other South and Central American Regions 5,000 Years Ago. (Btw, cacao price is super high now and the prices of chocolate candies give me headache.)

Emmenez-moi au bout de la terre
Emmenez-moi au pays des merveilles
Il me semble que la misère
Serait moins pénible au soleil

In my experience, if you're with the right people climate matters little.

And also in my experience, Finns are the right people.  ;)
