Practice Photos Taken in Chacala
Hurricane Juan slowed down and drifted out into the ocean right below Chacala, so we had no hurricane, no winds, and very little rain. All of the adrenaline and none of the mess to clean up.
We collectivo-ed into Las Varas this morning. I wanted to get some new flip-flops after mine self-destructed last night. And we went to the tianguis to check out this weeks plants. Then my son had a torte/sandwich while we waited for the collectivo. I got a bunch of practice snaphots in, and am starting to feel more comfortable with the camera. Daniel, who runs the little taco/torte stand next to the collectivo stop, has an email address, so I am sending him the photos I took of him, his wife, and the shop.
While we were waiting (forever) for the collectivo to show up and take us home to Chacala, we had tortes at Daniel's Taco stand next to the collectivo stop. Daniel and his wife and worker were (I think) willing participants in my taking photos with my new camera.
Now, back at home, we hosed off the veranda and pulled the plants back out onto the veranda. Now I am spending the day putting everything else back in place.
