Lessons in the morning. After lunch went in to FRiDAYâ€™S yet again. In the mall there were budgies in a cage in the sun without any water and I gave the girl who was supposed to be looking after them some information about how to look after budgies. Must admit, I donâ€™t like birds in little cages anyway.
I did some last minute shopping for tonight, like salad veggies and then caught a taxi back home. Before I get into the taxi, I asked how much? Five dollars. No, too much. I walk away and immediately the taxi driver says, four dollars. Typical situation. We both know that the fare is four dollars, but he thinks that I donâ€™t know; blonde tourist.
I get the dinner ready. Mariana and Maria Jose donâ€™t return until Â¼ to 9 so itâ€™s a rather late dinner and a bit heavy for that time of night, although itâ€™s nice. Iâ€™d bought the closest that I could find to cream for the brownie slice, but even then it has a manufactured taste. The accompanying raspberries were very cheap and very nice. Mariana and I play some cards, but itâ€™s late, so time for bed.
