Good Going Cecil !!

the transfer of skills ,culture, stories from one generation to another is so important

here in corsica there has been a"broken link": the kids  from 14 to late 20ties do not know
anything about fishing,watering a garden, fishing, hunting or even checking the oil in a rent car(..)
the passing has been lost!!
sometimes they can make up for their ignorance  with the smart phone,( but the batteries need recharging >:D)

Thank you. My Grandson is 21 now going to school and working, so he doesn't have much time for Trompos. This was just a warm up for him. When he's warmed up he is nothing but MAGIC with EVERYTHING. If I was rich I would send him to Columbia to learn from the street performers.

This happen about four years ago. They took the video off you tube so I redid it with different music and added a few more pictures. It's the day that four CHAMPIONS showed up.

That is a Cometa top made in Mexico. Gus brought a lot of them to give away. I hope that day happens again.
