Machete Patrol

We stopped by the side of the road to bird watch.

5 random reasons to carry a machete in Central America.

1) Tourist control.

2) In case you can't find a tooth pick.

3)  Everyone has one and you would look like a fool without it. (No joke!)

4)  You might drop your butter knife on the floor at dinner.

5)  It's a jungle out there...

Oh, my goodness! I'll try to remember this if I travel there. I wouldn't want to look out of place. :-)

You just reminded me of an ancient memory of sitting in my first publico (public transportation) in Puerto Rico. The guy sitting next to me had a machete in his hand! Happy summer, and I love that door header, although I miss that cute little chipmunk. :-)

LOL I have a machete for yard work. It makes me feel very powerful, like a pirate. I have to control myself to keep from swinging it around my head like a sword. Seriously, I have banana trees in yard.and that is the only way to cut them.
