one of my friends posted to Facebook an experiment her friends or family had done with a young black locust tree, placing mauls and axe heads on branches and letting them grow new handles for the tools. it took a few years for the first one to be harvestable, but if done right, these handles could last many years.

did my first 5k-or-more jog of the year, the malecón to the end, and back on the upper road cut into Cerro de la Calavera. then on my way back I found a 50-peso note not far from that ugly yellow hotel north of Marina Palmira, just lying there in the sand next to the path.
