Just let awareness have its way with you completely.
|What Chayo calls Mike and Marie - Since I like to read to Mike|
Peanut Butter is Too Greasy
We have eggs for breakfast and I know there are only 4 since I helped pick them the previous day. Mike and I are offered all four and the rest of the family goes without. They are so giving and generous but it’s a little hard to digest (pun intended).
Around here, most people travel in the back of pick-up trucks. It is not comfortable especially when the truck you are in doesn’t have shock absorbers left. Most folks will offer rides to whoever is walking their way. On the way to Sierra Lago we see a man carrying a bucket collecting Nopales (edible cactus) with tongs so he doesn’t get pricked with the many needles. We see men on horseback, the stirrups of the saddles made of old tires cut in strips. The houses dotting the village are all on the steep hillsides, smartly leaving the flat lands for food production and livestock.
Chayo picks a few green apples from the many fruit trees on the resort. She will make what she calls‘marmalade’ to add to the center of delicious shortbread cookies she’ll be making later on that week.
