Chapter 6: Back to normal
"...Spanish, or English or French, only Creole. He was tall, long limbed and strong, but so thin you could see all his bones. I took him round the garden trying to explain what needed doing in a mixture of Creole and French and to everything I said he replied, “Oui Oui”. From then on everyone called him Oui Oui. I showed him his watchyman house with a bed, a television, which had satellite programmes, and a little bathroom and living area. ..."

"... his watchyman house with a bed, a television, which had satellite programmes, and a little bathroom and living area. “What do you think of it Oui Oui?” I asked in French. “Good, good, very good,” he replied beaming. The next day I bought him a two-ring gas cooker and a small fridge. ..."
"...“He is in the church. He is the pastor. He is pastor and dentist.” There was a little Haitian church, constructed out of wood and plastic sheeting, down the road from us, and the pastor would hold his surgery after the church service. Oui Oui was missing his two front teeth so I assumed it may be about those. Off he trotted and returned an hour later holding a bloody handkerchief to his mouth. ..."

Oui Oui was in the colmado, and Dany and Alberto, who were home for the weekend, were nowhere to be seen. Strangely, there were no dwendies and no visitors. I was to find out later there were police stationed at each end of the street stopping everyone from coming near the ..."

Chapter 8: The fight goes on
"...So there I was, almost alone in the house. Just me, Oui Oui, the dogs and two security guards. I felt safe enough, as it was Danilo they wanted not me, but I felt very disappointed that he had won and we should have been in the streets celebrating, visiting people and campaigning, instead of being apart. ..."
"...crazy house all of the time. By now people started arriving at 6am, and by mid morning there would be over a hundred people in the garden. The dogs were happy as there was always food about. Dominicans need to eat constantly, and the dogs perfected their begging skills. Oui Oui spent most of the day picking up plastic cups and Styrofoam trays. ..."

"...Every day something bad happened. The cleaning lady left, though I was managing to scrape the money together to pay her; her husband did not want her working for us. The gardener, Oui Oui, broke his arm and went back to Haiti, as he did not trust Dominican doctors. Between us we gardened and cleaned, it kept us busy and we could not afford to employ anyone else. We were living off my private pension, which I had taken after I was shot ..."
