Sunday is typically family day in Mexico. Most Mexicans work a six day week, so Sunday is the only day to get together with family.
So Alfredo was there and so was his younger brother and two sisters and in total, four of their children. And of course a few of the neighbourhood children! Mary was working until late afternoon because she had had Friday off.
Five girls, one hammock!
I was pretty lazy all day. Even Ruth had a nap in a hammock! But Alfredo had a project on the go...he was building a cardboard truck for one of the neighborhood boys...
Alfredo and his son Gael, getting the materials ready.
Painting the box of the truck.
Starting to look like a truck. We haven't seen the finished product yet because the glue was drying.
Meanwhile, somewhere in the shade...
Kevin, lazing the day away.
They made a big pot of pozole for dinner. The corn hominy has to boil for hours, then they add chicken, pork, and onion. When the soup is ready, you have it in a bowl and you sprinkle various fresh shredded and chopped uncooked veggies into it. Onion, radish, lettuce, peppers etc.
Chicken and corn hominy boiling away. They still do a lot of their cooking over a fire, mainly because it's cheaper than using gas!
Dinner is served.
Today is our last full day in Puerto Escondido. Tomorrow, we fly back to Mexico City for a night. Not much on the agenda for today. Ruth has a blocked ear so maybe we'll stop in at the doctor's office where Mary works and see if we can't get that cleared up!
