Wow just realized I didn't post yesterday. We were out and about early to go to Golden Zone to watch the cruise boat people wandering around. After breakfast we too wandered around. Yesterday was one of the hotter days since we've been here and the humidity was up there. Not a good combination for me. Had to say goody by to Mark, Sheldon and Debbie and head home to cool off. Felt fine after laying down for a while. But stayed in rest of day until we went out to dinner later. Getting tired of restaurant food. But not cooking on this little stove that needs to be lit by match...
But first the weather here. Except for a few days with rather high humidity it has been perfect! There was some high wind the other night that caused some windows to rattle and canopies to blow around.This is a continuance of our walk the other day. The tree in the wall. There is construction on the small home right next to it. Only a door and a window wide, but two stories.
The tree in the door. I wonder if the door leads any where, or if it even ever opened.
Look how wide the walls of that building are. Over two feet wide, must keep it really cool.
This is a really pretty building, built in the late 1800's Wish they still built buildings like that.
Old window with glass and iron work looking into a parking lot. All that is left of the building are the outside walls.
Some graffiti on a boarded up window in another old building. This is really intricate. Would like to see it being painted.
We had lunch at Gaia again. Watching the people at the Italian restaurant putting the tables out for the night time festivities. Lots of tables to put out. They do that four nights a week and of course have to take them in at night because that is a street that is used daily.
The old, 83 years in same spot, The grandfather visiting his grandson.
Driving along the Malecon heading back to hotel. Those are both kites of a sort.
Sunday we went to La Noria where they were having the Fiesta of the Tamale. Was not a good idea. There were thousands of people there. Will post some pictures another day. Downloaded the DiDi app. it is like Uber I've been told. Might try to use it today to go to the Observatory this afternoon. Friends say it is reliable and much cheaper than taxis or pulmonias. Bill is doing really well, it is me who is having problems with the humidity and wants to go home.
