Dec 7: Soccer and Fast Food

Today started with church at 9am, for which we went at 9:20 and were just a bit early. Between the kids and the language barrier we really didn’t get anything out of the service. It was still nice to meet a couple people. One fellow who spoke excellent English stopped by our place afterwards to introduce himself.Nicole had a really rough morning with the kids and by the time we got home was in need of some solitary time. We tried to avoid her room for a few hours to give her a break, but its pretty tough in only five hundred square feed. Normally we would go for a walk or something but we had to have lunch, and I needed to keep out of the sun in order to save up for the soccer game.

That’s right. Early in the afternoon we all jumped into the back of a truck (women in the cab) and headed off to a local soccer field for a game. The team I’ve joined, from the Barrio, was playing.

The field was pretty nice, although there were a few uneven spots. The kids loved climbing on the bleachers, doing a bit of cheering, and playing on a nearby playground. In the end this gave Nicole the break she needed until dinner. It also gave us all a break from the loud music that was being blasted for the softball tournament, just like last Sunday.

For dinner we decided to splurge on some Fried Chicken, or KFC as the kids call it, from a little roadside joint near our home. It really is the same as fast food at home, they actually cook it right in front of us. I’m much less worried about getting sick from it than from the resort buffets. Total cost for 4 meals of 1 large piece of chicken and roughly 1 cup of fritos (deep fried bananas): 200 pesos or roughly $7.20 CDN. It was enough to more than fill us up and share with two local boys.

Now we’re just enjoying a little treat together and watching our good friends get baptized!
