Some Pig?

I’ve mentioned before how roaming pigs are a constant of life in Itipini. Indeed, that was part of the reason I chose “Charlotte’s Web” for my high-school English class.
We finished “Charlotte’s Web on Wednesday, in the nick of time too as end-of-the-year exams begin next week. It was unanimously voted better than “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.”

Ironically, on Friday I saw my first ever pig slaughter in Itipini, right on the other side of the fence that surrounds our playground.
Where’s Charlotte when you need her?
