The first film we saw was "The Hereafter" with Matt Damon. If you have seen the movie you know that parts of the dialogue is in french. Well, when the subtitles are in spanish we have no clue what they are talking about for part of the film. Fortunately, I don't think they will be throwing in a 3rd language all the time.
Joan has been taking classes in weaving and she started with things like scarves but she has now graduated to doing more advanced things such as the Poncho in the picture below. I don't know anything about weaving but it seems to me she is doing a good job and catching on quickly. I'm hoping she can weave a sweatshirt for me I can't find one here in my size.

|The "Dona Piedad" restaurant|
Mick and I left the coffe tree and went to a restaurant he had been taken to by Ecuadorian friends. The Dona Piedad restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside and the inside is not an inviting site and only has about 4 stools for seating, but the pork sandwich they serve is really a treat. The pork is piled on to a hamburger bun and is delicious. There is a "aji" sauce available which is spicey but not unbearably hot if that is what you want but for me the sauce smothered the taste of the pork that was just terrific. The sandwich is only $1.20 and is served with a coconut milk drink that is also very good.

Every day we find something new in our new home town. It is an exciting adventure.
