Daniel and I picked up Father Simon at Isla Trinitaria's main school (that's where he lives) at around 9:00 am. He was taking care of some issues so once he was done, we started our drive towards Monte Sinai.
Father Simon told us that the population of Monte Senai is about 350,000 and growing very fast. The roads are not paved and not all areas have electricity. Crime is very high on this area. He has built one school and his biggest ...

He was pretty excited about it. We passed a beautiful quilt shop with some stunning completed quilts on display. One ...
... car yards – the sort that sells cheap cars to ingenuous, cash strapped Australians- were all rip-off merchants (imagine that…) and we must buy privately on the omnipotent Craigslist website. After fruitlessly traipsing on foot all over town to look at cars that had already sold (or were unsellable) we found the perfect vehicle. Built shortly before the Mesozoic, the 5.8L V8 Chevy Juggernaut was exactly what we needed and almost too good to ...
