“Somebody should use this table,” I said, as I put the plastic porch table inside the new house, roof-less still. For the trabajadores, the workers. And as I set down the orange juice from oranges Jose gave me, they smiled broadly. Little did they know, there was more to come!

Needless to say, Tiko and Cuko were their best friends during lunch, as usual! Te aprecio – I appreciate you.
