This past Thursday after our Bible study in the town of La Libertad, Marsha and I decided to eat lunch at a restaurant that Marsha knew about inside a hotel right across the street from the beach. It was a "they serve you" buffet, and the food was quite delicious. The view was incredible and the atmosphere pleasant. How much did this dining experience cost us? Four fifty apiece. :-)
I had to take a picture of Marsha's dessert as I couldn't stomach the thought of eating any more. :-)
Our view: panning from right to left
The daughter of the home where we stay in Babahoyo has recently acquired a kitten. She brought it over on Saturday morning as we were getting ready to leave. I don't think I've ever seen a cat so constantly playful. Marsha enjoyed teasing her with her backpack strap. The video I took isn't that great both because of lighting and because I missed the real action. It might give you a bit of an idea of what our playtime looked like anyway.
I'll get it this time!
There comes a foot. Should I stick with the backpack or should I pounce on the foot?
Tela is cloth, so when that's the name of an extracurricular activity, the uninformed (such as myself) might wonder what it is all about. The last time we visited this home, Sabina was working on her routine for an upcoming recital, so we got to see what it was all about. Here's what I learned: One must be STRONG to participate in "Cloths."
