Acul was not short of children with machetes, but don't take it the wrong way. As people from the city we stood out like a sore toe which brought a few stares but all it took was a friendly hello to get a smile from the locals. Only a few blocks in size, people here live simpler lives and depend on the land, and they need all the labor they can get. However this isn't Industrial Revolution-type child labor, but a way of life. Everyone here helps out, and everyone is happy to do so too.
