Oti took off from work early, and she and Ruth made up a birthday dinner, and a cake!
They both like to cook, and Ruth loves learning how to make local dishes...so they went grocery shopping, and headed for the kitchen...
Ruth and Oti. They're making Oti's version of enchiladas, one of Ruth's favorite dishes.

Dinner is almost ready.
While the girls were doing dinner, the guys wandered down to the corner store and picked up a few cold drinks and sat outside in the garden. Paco and Oti have a black lab, and appropriately she is named "Blackie!
Blackie is such a good girl.
"Rub my tummy please?"
Dinner is served.
In the evening, Oti's daughter and her sister and family came over to share the cake. The two younger girls speak very good English, and it's always handy to have some translation available other than our handy English - Spanish dictionary.
