WEEK SIXTEEN CRONICAS
By Luz Cruz
“You have no idea what it’s like to wake up one morning and have everything thing you’ve worked for in the last 20 years gone.”
These are the words of Carlos Lago, owner of Finca Tintilla. Carlos and his wife Tita bought this farm in Guayama shortly after hurricane George struck the island, the condition of the farm that morning after hurricane Maria was reminiscent of what Finca Tintillas looked like when they first bought it. A farm that boasted 1,200 different species of fruit trees both endemic to Puerto Rico and not, lost the majority of that over the course of 24 hrs.
