The man has to tell a lifestory that provided themes for a volume. Profe Javier came 25 years ago from the poorest area of Bolivia, near Potosi in the highlands. He came to San Ignacio because of a teacher shortage in the lowlands. Since, he is teaching at the Granja Hogar school mathematics and sports.
Here he lives and has organised together with Don Braulio a small farming cooperation including a few hectares soil, where he grows sweetcorn and breeds cattle. A small pond is meant to provide the water supply for the cattle.
If he does not harvest corn, he chases away the parrots with a whip.
