Last nights dinner was some sort of potato stuffed crust puff ball, along with more fried green bananas and their special sauce. Both Craig and I are really enjoying the meals and have discussed bringing Lucero (the housekeeper/meal preparer) home with us! I could definitely get used to not only eating like this but having our meals prepared. Although I enjoy cooking, with my schedule, it's always a stressor for me. Ahhhh...but Lucero comes with a 13 year old daughter named Jasmine and a boyfriend. That may get a bit crowded. But one can dream. :)
We watched the fireworks kick off the Christmas season from atop our magnificent overlook. It was interesting to observe the display from this angle as the explosions were still well below us.
Around 3 a.m. The skies opened again and there was a downpour, however, in the morning, the sun was shining! Since it is best to fly in early afternoon here, we took advantage of the clear skies and went to town for a few grocery items. Since most people are back to work, the crowds were less but it was still fairly crowded. The streets were lined with evidence from the night before's celebration. This time at the market, I found a hat that called my name.
Deiter and Marcela say I look like a Colombian cowgirl with my new hat! Now all I need are some cowgirl boots!
Craig was excited to make a purchase you can not find in the states. This is a shower head that generates hot water simply by plugging it in to an electrical outlet. At least that is my understanding. There is one in the shower of the apartment we are staying in and it works great! He's not sure what he will do with it, he just knows he wanted one.
It is now 4:00 pm and it has been raining all afternoon. One thing is for sure....I will be completely rested once we get back home. I have been reading a lot and, of course, taking full advantage of a daily siesta. I just hope we see the sun again this week so Craig can get more flying time in.
