Update October 30

Nothing much happening here at the moment. We have done all the work for our visa temporal. More on that in a later post.

I seem to have stirred up a hornet’s nest with my blog about getting the boot. A lot of folks thought it was happening right away. Not so, we won’t be moving until we come down next year.

I’m slowly getting over my nasty cold. I had to go to the doctor as my mouth and tongue were very sore. As I told Peter, I had to wait while the Doctor was tending a horse with colic. He gave me some huge pills, told me to make sure I had clean straw and to eat lots of oats. It seems to have worked as I feel a lot better now.

It’s nice being back. As we walk around town a lot of the locals recognize us and stay “Hola.” I think they are friendlier at this time of year because they know we aren’t tourists.

Our language skills have gotten a bit rusty but we are picking up what we have forgotten and will soon be on track again. Rosalie is way better with Spanish than she lets on.

The temperature has been in the high twenties and the humidity hasn’t been too bad. So we are quite comfortable. We slept with the fan on high once but had to turn it down in the middle of the night.

We moved our bedroom to the front of the house so that I don’t have to listen to the f..king rooster anymore. The noise will start to get worse though as the festivals start soon. We have already heard a lot of fireworks going off.

We are enjoying our huge 30″ TV. I hook it to the computer and we watch Netflix. They put a new modem in for us and the WiFi has been pretty good. The one they gave Gerry and Elaine next door wasn’t as good so they hook up to ours.

Our WiFi just stopped working and we have been informed, contrary to what we were originally told, that we now have to pay our own WiFi. Yet another reason for moving. We have reversed the situation and are now hooked up to Gerry and Elaine’s. We will have to pay in the end though.

Most evening we just sit outside until it gets dark; me in the hammock and Rosalie in her recliner. Actually, we seem to spend a lot of our day there. Naps are optional. The biggest challenge is finding a good book to read. We go through a few as it’s our main past-time.

The mosquitos haven’t been bad so that’s a good thing. We don’t want Rosalie getting Dengue again. In fact, they sprayed the other day. No sign of any scorpions but I had to chase a few baby crabs out of the living room. There were also a few ants on the counters but we put down some Ant-Begone and that seemed to take care of the problem.
