This is Eddy of Eddy's Place, the first hospedaje I stayed in when I arrived in Panajachel.
He's a great kid, and he and his little sister always hung around when I was in my room.
If I needed some quiet, I would send him to the little tienda down the dirt road
for cigarettes, beer, or water.
The tip I always gave him was our signal that I needed to be alone
to study my Spanish or write.
He would take his reluctant sister by the hand, smile
and take off for the tienda to buy treats.
