Felix, the Kendall Camp address is 11025 SW 84 St. It is now a huge park called Indian Hammocks Park. Some of the bldgs. are still there and I believe are still being used by the govt. for children. If you look in my profile you'll see the bldg. where the girls lived which was taken this year. A friend took it so I don't know if the bldg. which was across the dirt road is still there. Eloísa

Felix: Just glanced at the Varela baseball team pix. I can’t say I actually recognized anyone, except the "coach" that was a professor of "educacion fisica"; his name was Enrique Tendeiro. That group appears to be younger than my group. The teams were divided by age groups. Under 13, under 15 and under 18. However, I do remember when we got those new uniforms. I played a little with the under 15 (also call "los medianos"). Did you go to Varela? Somebody on your page talks about Central España? Most of the guys and girls from Central España were medio-pupilos. How far did you get in school before you left? Looking at the profile you are a couple years younger than I am. Best regards

Felix: I'll send you the scan of the picture front and back. I am trying to remember his name, but it's been a long time. I'll go through the signatures on the back to se if they refresh my memory.
