French Baker
02/16/2009, Barra de Navidad

The French Baker is a real fixture in Barra's cruising community. He delivers freshly baked croissants and baguettes right to your boat via his panga each morning.

When we hear him on the VHF radio, he sounds just like the character "Le Beau" on "Hogan's Heroes".

Maria's Tienda
02/04/2009

Pascale enjoys a chat with Maria, the owner of Maria's Tienda. Maria takes orders for anything you want in the way of groceries, drives to neaby cities to get it if she doesn't have it, and delivers to our boat. She also delivers propane refills and laundry. She's a real gem.

Dang, that beats the heck out of being here. You guys have it right. I imagine that your hostile takeover would be met with a sigh of gratitude and relief. You would be greeted as liberators!
