Prayers to you and all at the Finca. Don Beto was a good man and I am honored to have known him. He will be missed.

Thank you Sam. I'm happy you had a chance to meet him.

Here I am, in tears, because this isn’t a fiction novel that I’m reading, it’s nonfiction at its purest and rawest and it has really broken my heart.
I will miss reading about Don Beto.

****Descanse en paz Don Beto****

Life (and death) on the dangerous roads in El Sal...

I'm amazed and impressed by your reporting objectivity in relating this tragedy, Stephanie.

I remember writing home years ago about a bus accident I witnessed in Honduras (26 dead), after which I helped carry out the injured over a bloody afternoon. After I finished the letter, I had a good cry in the arms of my girlfriend, had a couple of stiff drinks, and went to sleep.

I hope you were able to do something similar to deal with the trauma, Stephanie. Abrazos, T

Oh Stephanie, how tragic and heartbreaking. My thoughts and prayers go out to Don Beto's family and everyone on La Finca.

Wow Stephanie im sorry about your loss... truly i am.

I am sorry for your loss.
Your writing is remarkable. You placed me there and I felt so much sadness for the loss of Beto's life!

I have discovered so much about El Salvador and its people through your diaries. A country who's people I cherish.
Take care and safe travels...

Stephanie.. several years ago, I accidently found your sight. I was trying to find something about Fincas and saw your blog. I read all your sotires that year. And remembered something about Don Beto and Evers about a horse or the corn fields (leasing your fileds to other farmers).

Today is my first time reading in a VERY long time (Probably a year ago). I am sad to hear about Don Beto! AND I remember you showing the site to him and Evers and they were all amazed of their pictures. Especially Evers, I think he was the one who kept asking you to take more pictures! HA! :)

ok - back to reading.

Hope all is well. Keep up the good work! ;)
