Armando drove me on his motorbike to El Naranjo, the next settlement East, on the search for petrol. A hot black sand road, cows in the lush palm filled fields, stacks of sesame seed plants piled ready to strip, a warm orange sun. We met Dora, who makes these wonderful embroidery adornments. I commissioned her to make some for our shop. Armando climbed the orange tree and we ate them, green and hard on the outside, juicy within, by the tranquil canal, a couple bathing nearby. A lovely little adventure.
