Two guys have been working on fixing up the outside of the house here in Florida for the past week or two. Here’s one of them today, repairing a cracked pipe.

I don’t speak much Spanish, and he speaks even less English, so I haven’t been able to talk to him much. He came across as rather simple (probably because he doesn’t speak English), but very kind, positive, and hard-working. Well, it turns out a few years ago he was a neurosurgeon in Venezuela, and now he’s here doing what he can to support his family.

It was a reminder that I shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, especially when the book’s in a language I don’t understand.
