Until then, let me give you some of the highlights of this past week:
I was running some errands with a few people from the blood bank when we realized none of us had eaten lunch. It was nearly 3:00 p.m. The first restaurant we stopped at, much to my surprise was out of food. The second restaurant, a slightly larger establishment with tables and chairs.....was out of food
I went to the Botanical Gardens to listen to the police orchestra play a few tunes. The gardens were more like a large park. The music was nice, and I even ran into somebody who I know. More exciting than the music and even the flora, however were the animals. All kinds of birds cackled, crowed, and made their various other noises. The highlight was certainly the large pond with manatees. I had never seen one in person, and I rejoiced along with the other children as they moved slowly through the pond, eating large amounts of grass we (the children) fed them. Later on I saw a caiman as well. Lucky for me I was faster than the other children, and got away.
Last week, a person who has been showing me around here asked what some of my favorite foods were. Part of the long list included sushi, which sparked his interest. He picked me up last night from the hotel; in the car, he started talking about sushi. We went to a Chinese restaurant, and he proceeded to ask the waiter if they had sushi. Lucky for me, they didn't (not that I was surprised). I think I will keep my sushi adventures in the US and Japan, if I ever go. Especially considering most of the fish here is described only as "Fish."
Until next time....
