The kids, the nannie, and Doug

This morning, Doug and I took our usual trip into Los Organos to buy groceries.  Fresh produce comes in on Wednesdays, so everything is relatively fresh on Thursday mornings when they’ve had a chance to unpack everything.  I was also able to buy a 3 kilo tuna in the market.  Often times it isn’t available in small quantities so I often have to settle for the less desirable portion of the fish.

Esta manana, Doug y yo vamos a los Organos como normal para comprar alimentos.  Productos frescos viene los miercoles, entonces todo es mas o menos frescoen la manana de jueves cundo las empresas tienen tiempo para deshacer todo.  Puedo comprar un atun de 3 kilos en el mercado.  Muchas veces, no esta disponible en cantidads pequenos.  Y entonces necesito comprar un parte del pescado de menos de cualidad.

 We also went into Mancora early this afternoon to pick up a couple of shipments people have sent us.  One shipment was of medicine which we asked Luis to pick up for us in Lima.  The medication is not readily available here, and would be more expensive it we were to get it here.  This way, Luis picks up our medicine and ships it up to us.

Tambien vamos a Mancora temprano en la tarde para recoger envios nuestro amigos nos envian.  Uno envio estuvo de medicina que le preguntamos a Luis para recoger para nosotros en Lima.  La medicina no esta disponible aca, y esta muy caro si este  aca.  Esta manera, Luis recoge las medicinas para nosotros en Lima y nos envia aca.

Jim and Danielle also bought a few kilos of coffee in Lima before they left and sent them to us.  We can’t get good fresh coffee beans here in Los Organos.

Jim y Danielle compraron tres kilos de cafe en Lima antes de salieron.  Ellos nos enviaron el cafe.  No podemos acceso de bueno cafe aca en Los Organos.

Koky and his family arrived early this afternoon for a visit of a couple of days.  Shortly after they arrived, the kids and I were in the pool.  Both kids were very comfortable in the water.  Arantxa was like a fish, and her younger sister, Galliana, used swimming aids around her upper arms, but was very comfortable in the water.

Koky y su familia llegaron temprano esta tarde para una visita de dos dias.  Pronto de llegaron, los ninas y yo estuvimos en la piscina.  Las dos ninas estan muy comodas en la piscina.  Arantxa estuvo como un pescado.  Y su hermano menor, Galliana, estuvo usando aparato de nadar pero estuvo muy comodo en la agua.

We had a great tuna dinner with broccoli and rice.   Arantxa and her mom, Rocio are watching TV.  Galliana is chasing after Stormy.  Koky and Doug are on the terrace talking.  I am updating my blog.

  1. Hope the tsunami waves aren’t headed your way. The news isn’t showing the effects down the coast of South America but it shows energy headed your way. We’re still watching here, but no great waves so far. Take care!
