Beautiful sunny warm day.

I do my laundry.

I take a taxi to Madre Tierra. I eat a flavourful bowl of beet soup and what’s called the staff lunch. As I am finishing my soup Frank and Tamera arrive with Marcelle and Robert. Synchronistic because I had hoped I could say goodbye before they move to Cuenca on Wednesday. I buy a loaf of bread baked the day before.

“Staff” Lunch

Perfect afternoon to doze off in the hammock.

Keta calls and comes by a short while later with his wife. They both speak german. He’s a Peruvian jewelry maker who sells his products on weekends. They come by to accept my offer to place some of their wares on the website
