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.

Hey girls! Looks like tons of fun. Someone I know is smiling pretty big to see you two out in the world like that. So glad you got to connect for a little while before Teresa goes off to her big adventure. Thinking of all 3 of you lots!

We had a good time, Peggy! Wish mom could have joined us in person, but I definitely think she was there in spirit. Of course we kept imagining her on our adventures together. Now Teresa is off on her own different adventures. Makes time together so much more valuable!
Hope you're doing well in the new job!
