Woke up a bit before 6:30 today. Karen was up, so I got up too. I didn´t bother typing out journal entries last night after I went thru my pictures from yesturday, too pooped. Fell asleep immediatly. I slept in a T-shirt last night hoping I wouldn´t wake up sweating and then get cold. I did wake up with a sore throat, luckilly I randomly put my water beside my bed, so I took a sip and went back to bed. But then I had a dream that I went to Dr. Delgrande (a doctor from perth working on the project here as well with his family) and before he could diagnose me I woke up and it was gone! I´ve mentioned to other people I´ve been having weird dreams every night, and I´ve been going back into them as well. sometimes more then once. Of course its always a little different each time you go back in.
Breakfast today was a soggy waffle with pineapple, watermelon, and papaya. David had the same thing but with yogourt/granola ontop. On our way to build stove number 2 today. Afterwords me and Karen are developing pictures for people in the village
getting images developed at a liquor/candy/photo prints place now. It will cost me 20Q for 30 pictures roughly $3CAD I believe. Then we´re going to eat at a more authentic Xela Restaurant instead of the Italian food we´ve been eating lately.

|Gringa's special? lol|
Karen, Max and I walked all over the Xela market to gander. me and Karen bought some mitts for like 5Q ($0.60 CAD) and I bargained down from 10Q which is like $1.25haha

But they both followed me out to the field behind their house.

John played soccer with him, his brother, and papa. Paul gave them a new soccer ball to replace theirs which I'm pretty sure was a basketball. The chickens and ducks moved out of the way nicely.
Curious villagers came by to see the Gringo's at work again.
