... of carpentry. Legend has it, on the last day of the novena, a gray-haired man came up to the convent with a donkey and a tool box with an offer to build a staircase.

The towns we drove through were quite sad in general. Many of them had storefronts that were boarded up, which were clearly at one point in the hub of town. There were so many cool strips with lovely-looking storefronts like these, but they were mostly closed up and collecting dust. I was hoping for a ...
