It's good for me to actually leave town on Sunday so that I don't show up at the site three times a day "just to see how things are going."
Four of us including Lila climbed into Mitsu and headed South.
The approaching Semana Santa can be felt and there was way more traffic than usual, which made me appreciate how smooth and easy this drive usually is.
Twenty minutes through the jungle and twenty minutes through a series of red lights (oh dear - all the ways to mess up while driving over here...) and you arrive in a sweet mid-sized beach town with a great little health food store, which is worth a story all in itself. Twenty minutes more and you are in the city, complete with a Home Depot, Costco, and Petco.
We had a plan and it was threefold: make our way to an English speaking used bookstore, then lunch at a Nashville style restaurant to fill up on exquisitely fried chicken and mac 'n cheese - then up the coast to a secret place, a tiny tiny village I was excited to share because it is so darn beautiful.
All three goals were achieved (the bookstore was a bit of a letdown but the chicken wasn't and everyone loved my special waterfalls/swimming hole spot) and we got home with our souls and bellies filled to the rim. As a bonus, we did some people-watching and I had excellent Lime Ice cream. It always surprises me how varied the adventures can be, over here. You can watch a Broadway-style show one night and be hiking in the jungle in the morning.
Me, I was excited about the next day, which is Monday! On Monday, we make things happen.
Will I learn?
