    Our room in hotel Buci opened on a yard with an almost abandoned plant. The yard was half covered by a vine running on a half broken steel frame. The broken frame was falling too low to allow the passage of the truck. The driver had a hard time to start the engine of the old half broken truck. May be 15 minutes! After that, he maneuvered rear for a long time, centimeters by centimeters to park the truck as far as possible, close to the pole that sustained the vine. In the mean time, another man hold the falling vine as high as possible to increase the height of the passage.
