Description:This recording is about Don Elpidio's experience through his life. He talks about different things. Among these experiences that he narrates we find things like what he did when he was a kid, and when he was growing up. He refers to an anecdote where he was harvesting cocoa and a person asked him why he needed cocoa. He responds that he needed cocoa because he wanted to eat some meat, and that cocoa was used to buy meat. He narrates things like what his people used to eat, and how his grandmother used to cook meat. He also mentions what people used to do when someone dies, and how they prepare the body. He says that they used to cover the body with a palm mat, and that they also used to put some cotton in the feet of the death person so that they can get to the other side. He also talks about how people used to dance, which is different the way youths do nowadays. At the end of the recording he talks about some of the jobs he had, and how different the place where he lives now used to be.
