Great Grub and Gringo Day
It's 5 o'clock in the morning and I am up and about. Not that I wanted to be but this morning a guy was going around in his car with a loud speaker, rabbiting on about something (very difficult to understand spanish through a loud speaker, especially at 4.30am). What is it about these people and their penchant for waking everybody up??
Sitting around this table we have
Aussies, Canadians, Americans, Mexicans and of New Zealanders
Oh well I'm up now so I might as well tell you about our day yesterday. Mark had the talk at the English Meeting so that filled our morning up. As we always do we went out to lunch with a few of the friends. We have a brother and sister in our congo that own a restuarant and I had wanted to eat there before we left. So with trepidation (you never quite know what the situation will be ie cleanliness and what the food will be like) I suggested we go there. Thankfully William and Sandra run a pretty good place. Everyone loved the food and the atmosphere was great.Phew - especially when there was so many of us - there was a lot riding on my decision.
With William and Sandra. Not a great photo of any of us but I just wanted to show you why I feel like a giant here! I guess poor Sandra didn't feel too great either with so many tall gringa women towering over her!
Today we are off to Salinas - its a beach on the coast - for our last Hor-rah with Chad and Michele and the Ochoa family. It should be fun but I am not looking forward to the 5 hour bus ride. Maybe though I will sleep thanks to the stupid man with the loud speaker this morning.
