    Yup. Gonja (marajuana) is smoked freely and constantly. Not so much by the masons but by the laborers.

    The stacks you see are maybe 5 percent of the pile. The guy cuts it and mills it in the bush with a chain saw then they carry it out by hand and stack it. It would be very valuable here, but importing it would be difficult. I bring back small pieces in my suitcase.

    These guys are good. Very labor intensive. Slow.
    Lots of missionaries in Janaica.
    Do you know where he will be?

    The detail and craftsmanship in the masonry is beyond exceptional that deserves more than a two thumbs up:good2::good:. The masonry work is consistent and exceptional!
