Well that was a fun weekend before my busy week.
It turned out that they did indeed want the translation to English. I'd looked up the difficult words on Thursday night, in case, so I did the translation midair and during my stopover in Tenerife. Then when I got to El Hierro, we went to a cyber cafe where my friend proof read the translation and I emailed it off. I finally got to see Tacorón, down at the southern tip of the island, and got chatting to an old lady about her cats.
We had several good walks,too, but I think my favourite photo op was the old men playing cars for coffee beans in the bar.
