A lesson I learned living with my Mexican family here in Melaque. Here's a French how-to video so this is not a Mexican or regional 'thing'

I was out in back busy with something and heard a new whistle in the neighborhood. I just figured it was kids with a new toy but Mari came in and said the Afilador is here and asked if I wanted the machetes sharpened. He has a small plastic pan flute that he announces himself with. So for 40 pesos apiece he sharpened my machetes while telling stories and jokes - a real character. 10 pesos extra for fotos ;)-
I hear this guy (or another) can ruin a good kitchen knife so beware !!
