Later, back at my hotel, Victor and I carefully put the cactus in a plastic container I had brought with me – it was what I used to eat my breakfast and lunch out at the Habitat job site. I knew he and his mom could put this container to many uses later. Victor was very proud to bring this home to his mother; from what I gather, I don’t think they have much more than Alvertina.
