Monday up early to drive to Santa Claire Del Cobre with my amigo Ernesto. Watching a 56 year old man work can humble
you. The people were so kind. Left there via a cobblestone road and drove to Paracho to look for guitars. Found an acoustic/electric and "had to have it" so the luthier said he could finish it in 3 hours. Spent the night in Paracho.

took some awesome pictures,picked up guitar,bought an old lady dinner,,,,what a trip. Then drove back to Troncones.
Ernesto invited Max over to play guitar,again.....Awesome.
