My Jeep

SYNOPSIS:  EXCURSION PARQUE NACIONAL GRAN PIEDRA AND EL COBRE.

A 1940 jeep pulled up this morning in front of our casa.  Weathered and rusty, it was a workhorse of a vehicle.  At maximum capacity, it could hold 10 people, two in the front, and four each on sideways benches in the back.  But it was just me and the driver, since Celi had to back out at the last minute, to make the excursion into the mountains.  Dencil, my driver, spoke not a lick of English.  And my Spanish sounds like this:  I take an English word (if that does not work, a German one), and pronounce it the Latin way, articulating every vowel and if it sounds good, I will add an ‘a’ or an ‘o’ at the end.VIEW PHOTOS AND READ THE WHOLE STORY
