A little of this and a little of that.

While we wait for the bus, I see different things:

We just bought some new chairs for the patio, so we decided to try them out.

One day we were coming back from shopping and we were in a big traffic jam coming out of Portoviejo. We spotted this:

Later we went for dinner. I did not  get pork, but Leo did. We tried a new restaurant. It was different. It had the cooking facilility at the back and along both sides they had little compartments with a table in each. There was a place to park in front of each compartment. The food was good. I got fish and Leo got pork. Olayita and Colon got chicken. Their aji sauce was very good and we ate a lot of it.

Then we stopped at Mariana’s house. She gave me a souvenir from her recent trip to Salinas, which was very thoughtful of her.
