The ejido at Tres Garantias had just bought a portable sawmill, and I stopped by to watch them square-up some logs.  As shown in the image below, the sawyer is clearly having the time of his life. [NOTE: There are some glitches here. The sawmill they purchased was designed to be used with conifers, not tropical hardwoods, and several dozen bands, i.e. saw blades, have already snapped].
