LATE BREAKING NEWS– Fifty Beds Completed and Delivered

On Friday afternoon we completed our 50 bed objective. We celebrated with the driving of the last spike at  the women’s center. The last bed was delivered to Herman, a touching story you will read about later. I am behind because we lost the internet yesterday so stay tuned.  Today everybody  but Butch jumped into two Tuk-Tuks and headed for Panajachel. “What a blast”.  We bartered our little hearts out and always ended up spending more than we should have.Many laughs, mucho cerveza.

Special thanks to Joan’s granddaughter  Pyka who is following our blog and told her grandmother to give the ten dollars she got for Valentines Day to the poor children and she will repay her when she gets back.  Thank you Pyka.

This man would have been hired to haul the last be up the mountain maybe getting equivalent of  about$0.50. The beds were very havey because the wood wsa still wet. The mans hands were huriting  so I gave him my work gloves. A fitting end to a great project.
