Pagan, anyone?

Emily and I went to visit Herb Soll the other day at his house. Herb has been a judge, an attorney general, has lived on three different continents, but what he is really famous for is eating huge amounts of food and taking more pictures than a school yearbook photographer.

He treated us to some of his collection while we were there and even gave me a few prints from the time he and Dad visited Pagan.

Here's a picture of Dad with a frickin' huge coconut crab and a picture of Dad with a freshly killed monitor lizard. Yum!

Herb also had a few pictures of Dad fishing with a talaya. In the first picture he is looking for the fish, in the second picture he is throwing the net over the fish, and in the third picture he is pulling the fish out of the water. Yum!

Speaking of Pagan, my cousin put me in contact with our third cousin, who introduced me to his son, who has a house in Pagan. He asked me if I wanted to hitch a ride with him the next time he goes up.

You can probably guess what I told him.

I got a friend up in Pagan, Sandy Castro from San Antonio.

Who do you have to contact to get there? I always admired people that are living there.

Once I get back home, I'm going there somehow, even if I have to swim!
