It was with Cal Bombay Ministries, which is presently at work in Sudan. Besides establishing a local farm growing maize (corn), Cam Bombay is making it possible for locals to begin and expand their own farming business. This enables them to make important purchases of food and family items and also enables them to send their children to school. While we were there we spent a lot of time preparing fields for growing and also planting.
In the photo from L-R (with Downhome magazine in it): Gentleman in Leafs shirt named Monday (yes, like the day), myself (Ron Hughes, originally from Corner Brook), Jason Persall (Ontario farmer), Sid Kramer (Nova Scotia vegetable farmer - retired)

Che Guevara Mausoleum
While in Cuba in May 2013 I was fortunate to get to Santa Clara and to the square where the Che Guevara Mausoleum is. He was at Castro's side during the 1959 revolution. I had also visited Che's and Fidel's hideaway in the Sierra Maestra mountains, from where they attempted a coup in 1956. Wherever you go in Cuba, Che's photo is there.
