For the next hour, we walked around downtown and I swear, every last business we went into had the friendliest folks you could hope for. We spent most of our time in the Village Hall, where people were paying their water bills today, and joked around with a woman who works there, Sherry.

At breakfast, Manco told us there would probably be some
