Just like the Andrews sisters' song.
Yes, it’s been a few days since the last blog post. Carole’s sister (and Tim’s new little sis), Teresa, has been in town and we’ve been trying our hand at playing tour guide. So far so good, right, Teresa?
We had a house party to celebrate Teresa’s arrival and show our friends our new temporary pad. Guests were impressed with our pina coladas, served in real coconuts with fresh coconut water and pineapple juice (can’t go wrong with the local tropical fruits). Using Cuban rum, which is almost impossible to get in the U.S., the drinks went down quite smoothly.
If you like pina coladas, then you'd love these ones in real coconuts.
Trekking through the Market in the morning.
Yesterday, getting up at the crack of dawn when the roosters are crowing, we made our way to Makola Market where you can buy just about anything, whether you need it or not. Since not all the vendors were set up yet, we flew under the radar as obrunis
and were able to take in the sights and smells without being hassled. Tim got a handmade wooden spoon for the equivalent of $.60 and a big bag of hot red peppers for $.30, while Teresa got a lot of pictures.
It’s been lovely to have Teresa in town, not just because we enjoy her company, but it’s also given us an excuse compile a list of activities, friends and restaurants that we’ve come to enjoy here and share those with someone who hasn’t experienced them yet.
Teresa heads back to Dubai on Thursday. You can read about her adventures on her own blog, Miss Lundgren Abroad
