One afternoon, a man came over with a strange contraption on a wheel. It reminded me of an old weaving loom. He stepped on a pedal, which turned the wheel, which turned a frighteningly sharp metal disc, perfect for sharpening knives. Sparks flew as each knife sharpened. Pretty fascinating to watch!
At the same time, another man came and shimmied up a coconut tree. This tree was incredibly high. He took very few tools. A knife, a rope and small wooden board. I think he was trimming up the tree. Whatever he was doing, it sure looked dangerous to be up that high. He was clearly a pro.
