Today was a good Pday, cleaned, washed, had lunch, bought an ice cream, went and found a little painted box from Plaza Tipica and filled it with chocolate candies for Hna Dester's birthday present (her birthday is tomorrow), and wrote, and took a bus home and taught some lessons. Busy day with lots of people.

In other news, the time of the mangos has past, now the guava fruits are out in force. In Spanish it's the guayaba fruit, not to be confused with the guanabana fruit. The first few times I was trying to distinguish between them I kept saying "guayabana" as a mix of the 2 words, Hna Robles thought that was very funny.
And, just to reiterate, the buses are still extremely full... it's actually amazing how many people we can fit into one vehicle. And we go on buses/rapiditos quite often... always makes for an adventure! A lot of times we don't sit and have to hold onto the hand rails above (sometimes there's no rail, and just kind of a shelf, or you have to push on the ceiling to keep yourself in place. But when there's more people you just kinda lean on everyone and we all stay in place and that works too.)
And it's hot and humid and everything, of course, sometimes around 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm it gets more cloudy in the west and there's a nice breeze, so that's fantastic to look forward to, around October is when everyone says the rains start for real.
