THE RAINY season changes everything hereabouts. The mood, the grass, the feel, the temperature.
The daily rain was reluctant to start this year, but I think it’s finally worked up some enthusiasm. It rained gently most of last night and, as I write this in late morning, it’s still falling quietly and steadily, the rain. Nice.
Speaking of mood, usually, after our morning bagels or croissants, we step from the dining room into the living room and sit on the sofa, which is nice and soft. I put my feet up.
Sometimes incense and/or music.
We finish our coffee and talk. Okay, truth be told, she talks. And I listen. She is female, after all. And I’m not.
God created them to talk. Us to listen.
That lasts 15-30 minutes till we get up and start chores. There are always chores. We have no maid.
Life’s been pretty slow since we got back from our anniversary trip to Mineral de Pozos about a week ago.
Last weekend we hopped into the Honda and headed around the lake to an eatery I simply call The German Restaurant even though the real name is Campestre Alemán.
The German Restaurant offers grub you won’t find anywhere else in these parts, this world of endless tacos and cheese.
There is Bavarian sausage, for instance, and goulash too. I always order the Bavarian sausage, which comes with sauerkraut, something else you rarely encounter locally.
I took this photo of my Bavarian sausage and sauerkraut. Just beyond is the bunny my wife ate. I consider eating bunny appalling, but she does it anyway.
It’s still raining as I wind this up, which means there will be no morning exercise walk around the neighborhood plaza. I guess I’ll just shave, take a shower and put my jeans on.
It’s almost time for Breakfast #2. Cereal.
