"Good Morning Bakersfield" is the greeting from the weatherman here - and nearly every day is hot and sunny! I arrived here in the early hours of Friday morning to spend a few days with my sister Michelle and her husband Austin, the children Bethany, Eleonore, Samuel & Joshua. Santo the dog and numerous goldfish (five additions and one loss this week) complete the family! Over the weekend we headed to the nearby park for lots of outdoor fun - throwing the baseball about and fishing in the local pond. On Monday all the kids started back at school so me and Michelle went out bike-riding on a riverside path for an hour where we dodged the rabbits, squirrels and road-runners! We then jumped into the swimming pool to cool down before collecting Joshua and having some lunch. I could get used to the pace of life here... Tuesday was another relaxing day broken only by collecting the kids from school and then in the evening we had an Indian takeaway which gave me my fix of spicy food. Wednesday I headed off to Los Angeles on the bus (complete with a packed lunch - thanks Michelle it was yummy!) to catch an overnight flight to Colombia - it's going to be great to be back in South America!!!
