Big Shrimping







This is a picture of Lee eating his sugar cane. I think in the background you can see 2 of the boys looking for shrimp. Sometimes they use a mask and look for them in the daytime like you see here. Sometimes they go at night, when you can find more, and they just use a flashlight. I guess they still use the machete too. Our host brother, Rogelio, caught some by bopping them over the head with the machete. This is Marcelino, his cousin, in the picture.






Oh, and did you ever wonder how you would get your pig across the river if you needed to? Well, of course, you would tie a rope around its neck like a leash and walk it across like a dog. And don´t forget to have a friend walk behind it to make crazy sounds (something along the lines of giddy up) to encourage it to keep walking. The pig crossing is in the second picture on this post. You should be able to click on the picture to make it larger so the pig is easier to find.

Glad you got to finish the pig story. You know, I didn't even see that pig until you said to look for it. Is Lee ready for another pig yet?
