Dug-Out Canoes and Memories of Grandfather


My caveman and I deep in the jungles of Peru, in “la selva”. As a boy growing up he remembers his grandfather, from time to time, making a dug-out canoe just like these. His grandfather would take the caveman and his cousins out on the river and toss out some kind of explosive. Then he would tell the boys to dive for the fish. No playtime until dinner was gathered!

A barrio gringa with a dream of cosmic proportions: writing to satiate my insatiable curiosity, worldwide literacy beginning with our youth, and to be the first barrio gringa to explore outer space!

      1. enforcement of all rules are difficult, that’s why America and Europe have allowed the Muslims to set area’s where only sharia law is in force. Those people deal out death as a punishment for what we would call minor offences. In fact they would not even be classed as offences under the constitution.
