An impromptu dedication ceremony for the new streetlights on the road to El Olvido-Las Lomitas.

A few years ago, a spate of violence on this road prompted "The Lawyer," a powerful landowner that lives at the bottom of our hill, to install public lighting on the lower section of the road - years before electricity arrived to Las Lomitas. The night he was going to fire up the lights, he called on the community councils to join him for a spur-of-the-moment dedication of the little project, complete with a mini-sermon by Fredy. Some LomiteƱans walked down and some rode in/on our little Suzuki Samurai (pictured). The lights are still up and running, and they seem to have helped with their intended purpose. The Suzuki has since moved on to another loving owner.
