We spent Friday relaxing a bit, walking around the area, meeting some of the neighbors, and getting a feel for the house and area where we were to spend the next three weeks.
The house is fantastic, open and spacious and just the kind of house I would make. The dog, though he is still a puppy and was overcome with excitement, is a very good dog. I see some instruction and lots of walks to burn off excess energy and we will have a lot of fun. The area and the people – there will be much more to say in the days ahead! Today though, we will start with a few photos.
Meet Princessa who lives next door. She is a much appreciated cow for the milk she gives, and is friendly enough to touch when she decides that you are OK. She has a deep and resonate MOO though that will wake you up in the morning.
I am learning that it is a very commonplace thing here for someone to be taking his cows from place to place. These were on the road in front of the house.

There are many of these large birds here, and they are quite noisy.

Just a pretty flower
Whew! I’m not sure where today has gone. Tomorrow is another day, so when I am more rested I will post more photos and updates.
