...my best vacation to date.......After dinner we boarded a small fishing trawler for our final destination, which was a small group of islands called Cayos Cochinos in the Caribbean Sea.....two weeks living on a desolate island the size of a football field.............
....evening July 13, 1969 waiting for Dad to come home for dinner. Phone rings "it's me Dad. Just want to let you know that a war is about to start between Honduras and El Salvador. Don't worry, we live on a mountain and are safe. See you soon. "
Shortly after, the electricity goes off and we are in total darkness.......
