Not strangers, but friends
My second trip to Rocky Point brought the renewal of friendships with two families who have continued to improve on their property. We saw the completed bedroom for his boys that Javier built. Last time down we bought materials for the roof, and now we see a beautiful tiled room. The little girl in this family is a non stop dynamo of energy. The kids were manhandling Mariposas puppies like toys.
Don is hugging a family that are preparing to build a kitchen, and operating a thriving Mexican pastry business out of a honeycomb oven her husband built. Still poor in a poor country, but trying. Javier is facing surgery and months of rehab so we are hoping the family can pull together and survive till he returns to work.
