Mr. Tony Vega, 1995 with two visitors
He told us he lived in a little red tent back by the new cemetery and the nature reserve.
I talked to him every day that trip on my morning walk. He was as precious as could be and I always told him he was the cleanest most well dressed man I'd ever met that lived in that tent. We met him the first morning because we were being chased by an iguana and he came out of the tent.
His son, Tony Vega, Jr., owned the property next to the new cemetary. He used to be the owner of Vega's Inn. I guess he was teasing us!
Not sure who took that picture for me because I remember telling them to get the red tent in the back ground. I told him I was going to move back and pitch a tent out there beside him because it was so peaceful and quiet out there. I am cracking up that he told me he lived there in the tent. Chocolate always told me tall tales like that too and I always believed him.
i think this pic is the Alamina's Burial Ground. Not too sure, looks like it thou and probably that is why Mr Tony was there. That tent? Didn't it belong to (Iman) Russell Usher???
