David & Steve - The Island 3
Today we visited a nearby village where Robs family lived last year. Rob was able to connect with some old friends. We spent part of the morning with Robs old neighbor and discussed fishing in local waters. We were invited to eat lunch and enjoyed a local meal.
We visted with a very close firend of Robs that owns a local farm. We were invited to the local Mosque to observe Friday prayers. After Friday prayers many of the local men wanted to ask questions regarding the United States. It was a very interesting discussion.
We left the village and traveled to Robs friends farm. He grows bananas, pineapples, vanilla and raises cattle. After the visit to the farm we walked back home through the Jungle. It was about an 8 mile walk and we saw many local plants and animals including large bats and lemurs. It is amazing but very different than Texas.
The time spent with our friends here is enriching and their love of the local people is inspiring.
