Tuesday night after a delicious supper we went out for a farewell drink with Christine (our housemate this last week). A wonderful bar, above a creperie specialising in Nutella toppings, may have to investigate this further. Chris is back to El Salvador for a couple of weeks, then back to Seattle to finish her PhD in Archeology. Good luck for the future and love and happiness with Lauren. May just have to take you up on that offer for us to visit, as the Seattle Fish Market is on my Bucket List. I watched a motivational film many moons ago of the workers. They throw fish at unsuspecting customers (who love the banter), having lots of fun while working hard. Christine took the photo of us and the waiter joined in, shocking angle for my neck though. Bear is enjoying the dark, local bottled beer Mozza and downed a couple, Chris had a cubra libre or two and I had a strawberry yoghurt and rum smoothie – no Moth – no calories at all, so I had a second........

We just had to stop en route to school one morning and photograph a bit of local wiring. We got home to a delightful change of bedding, a really traditional bedspread.

Thursday nights school dinner saw no ‘Herman the Groin’ so no salsa lesson number three for Bear. Poor Herman fell in the street and broke his ankle. Instead a trio, two guitars and an accordion player. Letty and Geoff showed us how to dance.

We got home and Mama had put fairy lights on for us
