Yesterday it was humid and oppressive. For the second time during my stay here if rained heavily during the evening. I am hoping that means the air will be clear and fresh this morning. Late in the afternoon yesterday I swung in the hammock, reading for a few moments, letting the book drop onto my chest,and then, picking it up again to scan the page in that loose easy way that a dozing mind-set permits. A dark hummingbird, ever busy, chirping, scolding roused me to peel myself out of the swaying net and go and get ready to go out to dinner. I had a look around the veranda and thought I would share some of the things I saw
The little shop window with the bouquet always has fresh flowers and the tall-man puppet seems to hang out on that street corner. Can you see in the picture the opening just where his face can peer out. I was too slow to catch the little boy handing a sandwich in through the unobtrusive hole. Next time when it is not such a sleepy day.
