A Normon potato farmer from Ohio.

 This is for my Mormon friends' reading pleasure.
Ms Celia's brother was over the other day and he was talking to me about how happy he was to see that I loved Grenada.

Him - Where are you from?
Me - Ohio
Him - ooh yea I know Ohio! where the potatoes come from! I had a friend a few years back from Ohio. A potato farmer.   He and I would bathe (swim in Grenadian lingo) together on Grand Anse Beach in the mornings.  He was a normon.
Me - a normon?
Him - yes, wore the white shirt and went to the church down there.
Me - oooh Mormon?

I'm trying to write down all these silly stories so I never forget!

Hey Kelsey,

I just wanted to know if the "Basket of Love" program will end since you and Lee will be leaving the island soon. I wanted to send one in February of next year, will someone else take over that business? I wasn't able to access the blog page for it, it says it's private now and I need permission to view it.

Good morning how are you?

My name is Emilio, I am a Spanish boy and I live in a town near to Madrid. I am a very interested person in knowing things so different as the culture, the way of life of the inhabitants of our planet, the fauna, the flora, and the landscapes of all the countries of the world etc. in summary, I am a person that enjoys traveling, learning and respecting people's diversity from all over the world.

I would love to travel and meet in person all the aspects above mentioned, but unfortunately as this is very expensive and my purchasing power is quite small, so I devised a way to travel with the imagination in every corner of our planet. A few years ago I started a collection of letters addressed to me in which my goal was to get at least 1 letter from each country in the world. This modest goal is feasible to reach in the most part of countries, but unfortunately it’s impossible to achieve in other various territories for several reasons, either because they are countries at war, either because they are countries with extreme poverty or because for whatever reason the postal system is not functioning properly.

For all this I would ask you one small favour:
Would you be so kind as to send me a letter by traditional mail from Grenada and Grenadines? I understand perfectly that you think that your blog is not the appropriate place to ask this, and even, is very probably that you ignore my letter, but I would call your attention to the difficulty involved in getting a letter from that country, and also I don’t know anyone neither where to write in Grenada and Grenadines in order to increase my collection. a letter for me is like a little souvenir, like if I have had visited that territory with my imagination and at same time, the arrival of the letters from a country is a sign of peace and normality and a original way to promote a country in the world. My postal address is the following one:

Emilio Fernandez Esteban
Calle Valencia, 39
28903 Getafe (Madrid)

If you wish, you can visit my blog, where you can see the pictures of all the letters that I have received from whole World.

Finally I would like to thank the attention given to this letter, and whether you can help me or not, I send my best wishes for peace, health and happiness for you, your family and all your dear beings.

Yours Sincerely
