Rickety bridge and Mariana's English Institute

Lessons in the morning.  After lunch went in to FRiDAY’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 don’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 don’t know;  blonde tourist.


I get the dinner ready.  Mariana and Maria Jose don’t return until ¼ to 9 so it’s a rather late dinner and a bit heavy for that time of night, although it’s nice.  I’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 it’s late, so time for bed.
