Duncan's appropriate technology washing machine sidewalk shoe repairs Party crasher.  While sitting here for a cold drink, the shopowner told us about Michael, a sadhu from Colorado.

Michael sometimes eats with the shopowners family, had two children in the States who send for him occasionally, is 45, and wears his hair rasta style. Pictures for sale
