There were two brothers working on the grounds when we arrived and one came to join us and walk with us—we are not sure why, maybe to keep an eye on us or maybe just to be friendly. I have forgotten their names now because Sis Larsen called them Beauty and the Beast because that is what their names sounded like—not what they looked like. I got a pretty good picture of the cart they work with and like what we see in the smaller towns. It is a flat bed with a steering wheel on a chest high rod. A rope is wound around the rod and tied to the front wheels and as the rope winds around the rod it pulls the wheels one way or the other to steer the cart—very basic—and functional. The tires are about 10 inches in diameter and have what looks like reused tire rubber stapled with huge staples to hold it around the wheel. We have seen people carrying everything from stacks of cut wood to what looks like merchandise to sell on these great little carts. I would love to make one.
Our carving in progress
We did not actually see this scene but Larsens told us about it as we passed by the chicken farm where they took these pictures. Transporting live chickens in a taxi cab!!
The thought of this just cracks me up!

Some nice Spanish Town street scenes
Insert: Sister Brown (Pres Brown's secretary not wife) added "bumps" to her locks.
The Bumps I think are short for "China Bumps" which are tight twists of hair held with rubber bands and close to the head. She just added them to the ends of her dread locks. I think she added a little color also. She is getting ready for a major hair style change after 3 years of locks. I don't know if she is going to have them taken out or cut off. Many women here wear extensions in their locks as well as very beautiful wigs--HOT I am sure.
