This chapter describes Eduardo Barreiros Nespereira's successes in the Canary Islands. Eduardo Senior set up a small workshop of about 30 square meters approximately seven miles outside of Las Palmas in Tamaraceite, which means Grove of Palms in Guanche, the Canary language. He also rented a house of two rooms and bought two mules to carry the sieves to market. Eduardo Junior remembered the Canaries for a few reasons. First, he found the work of assisting his father with his products rewarding. Usually, Eduardo Senior and Luzdivina would spend two days completing their sieves and then, on the third day, Eduardo Senior would go out with his mules, selling them at markets or in farms. Eduardo Junior remembered these Fortunate Islands, since it was there that he learned Spanish and even came to speak it for a time with a Canary Island accent.
