I have some coffee picked and drying = success. The Natural Experiment has started. (When I say natural experiment I refer to natural process coffee, which is a new idea for this part of the Caribbean.)

A community is made whole by the diversity of its members. Los Frios and its surrounding campos (towns) are beautiful examples. There are truck drivers (the only transportation), mule dealers (the other transportation), story-tellers, talkers, doers, cooks, drunks, carpenters, masons, lumber-jacks, people of the church and people of the night. If you want to make your bull an oxen or fatten your mule (castrate them) – that role is filled by Nono, a hunched-back midget friend of mine.
