Hi Lauren,      That reminds me; a few weeks back Jose and I went back to Taulabe where you and he found a man selling cattle. We saw the motorcycle taxis (moto-taxis) that he told me you rode on, ONCE. He said you told him no more moto-taxis. They did look a little fast and not so stable.      In Taulabe we met the man and then he took us another hour out to another town where they sell a lot of cattle. It was way off the beaten path. We bought some mixed-breed beef cattle and a handsome little Brahma bull. Right now they (the cattle) are all in the front yard mowing (chopiando) for us and have been since we bought them. Today Jose is back for a day of work here while we wait for the final paperwork to finish and contact more suppliers for the hardware store. He and Walter will move the new cows to the back except for the bull and our little black heifer that we bought from the Mennonites. Enrique's brother (also Xiomara and Ada's brother) Julio came to work for us a few weeks ago. He and Enrique are very hard workers. They sometimes race the boys with the machete chopping the weeds. The boys can't hold a candle. Julio and Enrique are also busy planting our last crops before the rainy season ends.
