It is always a heart-warming experience for me to return to La Masica where I lived for three months in 2009 and made many friends. In the above far left corner is the bloodthirsty porton that attacked me three months ago. It may not look large but it weighs a ton. When I arrived to visit Yelsi, my god-daughter, it by coincidence was near the day the new pool was to be inaugurated at the Ramon Rosa school where I hurt my leg. My contraparte from five years ago, the school’s director, invited Yelsi and me to attend (Yelsi used to be a student there but when her caregiver died she moved to another municipio) It was Valentines Day. Appropriately a labor of love for my dear friend the directora. It is the only public elementary school in Honduras to have a piscina (swimming pool).
