Jonathan’s birthday was much more low key than the others we’ve helped celebrate.
Jonathan and Alex had a beer next door. The day was beautiful, but the ocean was too rough to swim.
We had great food, but a quiet day. Dalmira gave us two guinea pigs that she raised herself. They were young and tender (she said). Jonathan roasted them and they were excellent. Dona Berta gave us an apple pie. It was also delicious. I love my neighbors. Another friend brought by a copy of a book by her son, who we’ve met. He is a professor of the history of photography at a Peruvian university.
The sunsets continue to be lovely–sometimes even when the sun is only visible dropping between two layers of clouds.
