After some rest and getting acquainted with our immediate surroundings, Saturday was for going to town. We had a great breakfast and met a new friend who loves to go biking, so it didn’t take us any time to make plans to go riding together. Then, we walked around town a little so I know where to find anything I need.
We woke up to the beautiful scene of horses on the beach
These horses seem to just wander freely around the area.
Taking the calf for a walk?
Another interesting tree
A pig in the street. It may have been the first I saw, but it certainly wasn’t the last!
Ladies doing their washing on one of the platforms out in the lake, with their little boy swimming nearby.
The pretty road to town
Another lady doing the washing
The fishermen got washed out in a flood so they rebuilt here. At first they were shacks of salvaged materials but now they are starting to build more sturdy structures with block.
Government assisted housing for those unable to afford anyplace to live
Just a photo of the mountains in the distance
A very basic shack at the edge of the fishermen’s area. There are construction materials for the nearby road in front.
They are paving one of the roads to town.
It is interesting that everyone just walks through the construction area, dodging the workmen, tools, and any wet cement
Deb and Ron know someone who rents this house for $30/month
Another little house on the way to town
More local houses
We passed this church on our way into town
This is a motorcycle taxi. Very fun! We have the number for a driver if we need someone
Everyone in the truck!
Taking lunch around in a cart
This guy is preparing bags of mango slices
Colorful steps at the end of the main street
Another of the busier streets in town
We will have to try one of these watermelons
A peek into one of the many little shops downtown. I need to find this one again and look at those bottles of sauces on the bottom shelf
The new supermarket
Horses are also used as basic transportation
Every day I seem to come back with a lot of pictures. There is always something new, interesting, beautiful, or all of the above. Maybe a time will come when I have “seen it all” but I don’t see that happening while we are here, so there will be more photos coming!
