Altagracia Adventure

Henrietta, Lee, Wes and I took the bus to Altagracia to buy parts to connect the new roaster to the old propane tank. H has very good spanish but no one knew what the part was called. The hardware store said they couldn't help us. We headed to the BOSIA office to find Dorrita to see if she knew what we needed. Miracle! there was a tank with the valve needed in the office. valvulos por tank de gas did the trick so we took D to lunch and she put us on the right bus back to Balgue. In Balque Telma found us a ride back to the Finca. The so-called road is astonishingly bad. At least this is the dry season because I can't imagine a worse ride. (Until a few days later on the way to Merida!)

Lee and Wes aka Les aka The Igors hang out at the tienda in Altagracia after lunch.
