Amidst much drama-including no way to unload the tractor from the large lorry (truck) that brought it. The tractor arrived at the farm on Friday, December 18, 2015. Most heavy equipment, like our tractor, goes to establishments that have ramps or whatever is needed to unload it from the delivery source. Never having done this, we didn't know that requirement. Many phone calls, loss of communication, angry drivers, mad scrambling back and forth, finding people who might be able to help; and the tractor kept traveling toward the village. Road were thought to be impassable due to heavy rains, but the truck got through to the farm. Our tractor driver, Cosmos, was there, and it was a piece of cake for him, We "just happened" to have a pile of stones and a pile of ballast on site. He supervised the rearranging and piling up of them and improvised a ramp and drove that tractor right off! TaaDaaaaah!
