Today we went right into the heat of the day to get to an amazing butterfly garden near the city. This place breeds exotic butterflies for sale to butterfly gardens in the US and Eurpope. Pretty neat place. Unfortunately, I can't share photos of it because we just bought a new memory card for the camera, and the card with the photos is in Pauline's purse, and not here with me in the camera. (foiled again).
The one photo we have on the new card is of the sign for an english bookstore. I am sharing it because it is going to be our saviour here. You see, Abbey ran out of english books to read some time ago, and she doesn't have a lot to do on her own when we're around Astrid's house in the mornings, or on the car rides to different destinations. The main attractions around the house have been watching the cute little tree frogs that climb the walls cleaning out little bugs, or snapping photos of the large iguana that walks through the yard every morning. She has really been great, but having a few books for her will be a big help for everyone's sanity.
Saw clouds today. I would have cried tears of joy, but I was too dehydrated. Actually got out to enjoy walking around in the downtown in the very narrow window between when it starts to cool off (around 4pm) and when stores start to close (4:30).
Oops. Ran out of time and can't upload photo either. Will try later.
