Pablo and his machete in action

Yesterday I showed a photo of Pablo's machete in its leather sheath. Here is a photo of Pablo using a machete to cut the height of the pinuella plants that divide our condo from the beach. This is obviously a much longer machete than the one that he had in his sheath that I showed yesterday.

I took this photo from the balcony of our condo. The tree behind Pablo is on the beach. He cuts down these bushes which are thick with a ridge of spiked thorns on each leave, so that the people in the condos below us, on the ground floor, have a view of the ocean.o

Pablo will obviously keep himself trim getting exercise such as this. In addition to working full time as the gardener at our condo building, he owns a pasture outside the village where he lives and he raises horses on his land and tends to them.

On our Viva la Voyage travel photo site this week we are showing photos of the remoteness of Aitutaki, in the Cook Islands of the South Pacific.

I'm glad you mentioned that this machete is different than the one in the sheath. I thought my perspective was way off. This looks like hard work!

He is an artist with a machete!

Hard working fellow! Raising and caring for horses is enough work in itself.

It's hard work and keeps the "jungle" at bay. What a hard working guy!!

He must be quite the busy person with lots of energy.
