Experience of 007 Travelers: Self-made

“At six o’clock in the morning, before any of the “guests” were up, James was taken to the whipping post in the main square, where twenty men were waiting patiently. They were alla Indians, dressed in loose white cotton work clothes. A foreman called Morales divided them up into teams and set them each a task. James was assigned to a gang whose job was to rebuild an old stone bridge near the harbor. They worked steadily until twelve, when they were given a lunch of rice, corn and beans, and then had to carry on until sunset. The pace was easy-going, the men worked slowly but steadily. James didn’t have any trouble keeping up and he enjoyed the physical labour: mixing cement and carrying stones.”
