On the ride

While we were riding across the island in the ATVs we got to see some of the more rural places people lived. We saw homes that were simply a roof with no walls or electricity, stone fences with broken bottles and glass shards grouted to the top to keep intruders out, restaurants where they cook inside and you sit bar style along the outside of the building to eat because they don't have any air conditioning, roaming goats, and children playing together with sticks in rocky open fields. It was extremely humbling to compare our living situation to theirs, but the people we met were all really friendly, kind, and loved the island they called home.
