Moving day

I am constantly amazed to see how much Peruvians will try to transport in their cars!  I happened to see this one day as we were just going into Los Organos.  Those are mattresses on top,  furniture and  other household goods underneath. 

Quedo pasmadoconstantemente de ver cuanto cosas los Peruanos trataran transportar en su carros!  Di la casualidad de que vi esto carro un dia cuando estamos llegar a Los Organos.  Son  colchones encima de muebles y otras cosas par la casa.

It reminds me one particular car that comes in loaded down with all manner of food and dry goods on market day.  In this case, the trunk is open and overflowing; everything tied down with a rope or net.  The top of the car is also stacked high with products.  Inside, the only space not full, is the driver’s seat.  And the mixture of products is very intriguing as well.  On, and in, this car, you will find eggs, toilet paper, bananas, boxes of fruit, sacks of clothing, tools and possibly an appliance or two.

Lo me recuerdo de una carro que viene cargar con varias cosas el dia del mercado.   En eso caso, el tronco del carro esta abierto y se desborda; todos atan con cuerdas o redes.  Sobre el carro amontona alto con productos.  En dentro, el solo espacio libre es la silla del piloto.  Y el mezcla de productos son muy fascinante tambien.  Encima o dn dentro hay huevos, papeles higienico, platanos, cajas de frutas, bolsas de ropa, herramientas, y, posible, uno o dos aparatos.

 Even more amazing are the local mototaxis.  They will carry anything!  We happened to catch this one in Vichayito carrying the palm leaves for a thatched roof.   I saw one carry a refrigerator.  I’ve seen them drag lengths of rebar through town where the ends whip around like the children’s game we used to play.  I saw one with a couple of tuna on board; the head out one side and the tail sticking out on the other side.  Some day I would like to put together a photo essay of mototaxis and their talent for being so very useful for hauling whatever!

Lo mas quedo pasmado son los mototaxis locales.  Transportaran todos!  Di la casualidd de que vi esto mototaxi en Vichayito transporte palmas para un techo.  Vi un mototaxi que esta transportando un refrigerador.  Visto los que dragan cierro a traves del pueblos y los cierros azotan dar una vuelta a la calle como el juego de los ninos.  Visto uno con dos atunes; la cabeza esta colgarando de un lado y la cola estan colgarando del otro lado.  Un dia, desara hacer un ensayo de fotos de los mototaxis y su talentos para transportar cualquiere!

A friend of mine in the states asked how our landscaping was going.  We haven’t added any new plants other than moving the morning glory plants that keep volunteering.  Danielle gave me some geraniums and a jade plant.  They weren’t doing too well at her place, so she brought them to me.  Sanchez put them down in the garden by the pool where they would get some sun during the day but were shaded in the early morning and late afternoon and evening.  They seemed to really like the spot, so I never moved them.  They are thriving quite well.  The ice plant along the roadside hill are growing and beginning to spread out, but it will just take time for them to fill it all in.  The maracuya plants are looking like they are being eaten by something; but we can’t see any insect on them.  Knowing what magical powers Sanchez has, he will likely revive them.

Mi amiga en los EEUU me pregunta como va nuestra jardin.  No agregar algunas nuevas plantas excepto las celestas que se ofrece de voluntario.  Mi amiga, Danielle me dio geranios y una planta jade.  Las plantas no crecieron bien en su casa, entonces los trayieron a mi.  Sanchez ponen en el jardin cerca de la piscina donde reciben sol durante un porcion del dia pero son en sombra en la manana y tarde.  Ahora son crecen bien.  Las plantas a lado de la calle son crecen y empiecan a extender sobre la colina.  Hace tiempo antes de las plantas cubriran la colina.  Las maracuyas parecen que tienen insectos que comieren los holas, pero no podemos a ver los insectos.  Sabemos que Sanchez tiene capaz majicos, el puede resucitarlas.
