It began with a small advertisement in the Catholic News titled ‘Captivating Cumaca’. As a little boy I was always fascinated by the name Cumaca and always curious to know more about this village situated in the foothills of the Northern Range off Valencia, but it didn’t happen until last weekend. I have been to far-flung countries in Asia, Europe and the Americas, including inside the White House but never to ‘Cumac’ in my own backyard.
Enthusiastically, I called up friends Ralph and Donna, offered the suggestion, which they roundly endorsed because they too, had never been to Cumaca. So, last Sunday this brave but awesome foursome (Vernon and my wife Joan, Ralph and Donna) took off on our adventure into the unknown. And an adventure it was.
