    ... were spent at the newly found wifi location in Copeys educational centre. At one point Will and I even got the chance to play soccer with the locals, an opportunity I am so grateful for :') Dream fulfilled!!

    ... As I half expected, a 5 minute job turned into an hour long event. No, the job I needed done was too fine for their heavy leather sewing machine, but if I just waited a few minutes, they would have it done somewhere else in town. So I settled down, drank some coffee and learned how three generations of leather workers kept the store going. The youngest had invented a leather stool and a prostate easing saddle ...
