... best. West plans on returning in a few years and he's like to help them when he does, and that would give him the land and an already started plantation that he wants as a life for himself eventually, provided Heladia and Pedro are both still alive when he returns. After the eye-opening conversation, West and I decided to go check out the newly built clinic where Luis and Pierina work.

We heard there was a place where we could find some chicha, a fermented alcoholic corn drink typical to ...
... several other shack-like type homes close by. Several dogs saw us and started barking like mad. We tried hushing them up but nothing, not even some of the cheese we had, appeased them. Eventually, a little old indigenous lady wandered over to us, clearly shaken by us being on her property. We told her our story and that we just needed a place to set up our tent and she agreed to let us stay. Her name is Margarita; very easy to remember. We set up the tent and then shared a meal of ...
