I was like seven years old when my dad took me with him, to make a phone call at the Castillos's home/busines family,the telephone was black and gigantic, Rosa the older dougther was the operator, it was unbelievable how easy was to communicate with somebody in Manzanillo Colima, that day also saw the first orange tree with tangerines and key limes,all in the same tree, it was Right in the middle of the patio where I was waiting for my dad, probably you are wondering how the telephone was working, my grand father generation one day, they got together and grab they machetes and manage to connect a coper cable from la manzanilla to melaque, it didn't last that long it disintegrate in short time in the jungle.
