Last night, Saturday, was Ladies’ Night Out at Carmen’s house. Carmen is an Ecuadorian who is married to a Canadian. Her husband Roger, is in Canada visiting his family, so she is alone. She had a potluck dinner, so we could all get together. I love potluck dinners, because I love to taste things I might not otherwise taste. There was lasagna, an eggplant-tomato dish, chicken with a ginger sauce, quinoa with spices, vegetables Tian, carrot cake and fruit on a skewer. Everything was delicious. It gives everyone a chance to talk, girl talk. I met another Ecuadorian woman who used to live in CA. She is married to a man from the States. I enjoyed talking with her.
I am a bit sad to be leaving Playas, because I have met so many nice people. We have been very active here, too. I am afraid that it will be too quiet in Crucita, but let’s face it Leo and I will make the best of any situation. If it is too bad, we could try to move back here in a year. Or we could have the time of our lives, who knows the future!
While we were having Ladies’ Night, the Men were having Men’s Night Out at Neil’s apt downstairs. Leo said they had great food and conversation, too.
