Radiator Cap

Last week, when I was checking the growth bands around the caoba (Swietenia macrophylla King) trees in the forest outside of Noh-Bec, we used an old pick-up truck belonging to the father of our local collaborator, Gustavo Martinez. Sturdy truck, over 20 years old.  Only problem was that it didn't have a radiator cap and we had to keep stopping to pour in water every time the motor overheated. Which happened a lot on the ride back to the village. [NOTE: That's Gustavo in the video clip.  When we finally made it back to Noh-Bec, his family served us a delicious tamale lunch with cheese pie for dessert. Mil gracios a la familia Martinez]
