Emailing from Tabacundo, the town a $0.15 bus ride away, and today Walter´s paying for email, so we´ve been here nearly 2 hours! He also owes me about 6 pan de piñas (pineapple breads)
i haven´t been doing alot on the farm in the afternoon because i am so tired after school (school is from about 8-11.30, and then we have lunch and usually stay and play a bit, but i´m usually home by 1. i´m tired because i keep getting woken up by a rooster at about 5 o´clock, only it was 3.40 this morning). But the family I'm staying with have a vegetable garden, ad i did help transplant some onions yesterday)
At school Walter has the older class and I'm with the youngest ones who do a lot of playing, a bit of maths, spanish (so basic even i can do it) colouring and sticking, plasticine....they all like the rocket number cards, and unfortunately some have gone missing, but i can make some more. The fairytale cards were so popular that they disappeared after the first day but thankfully tunred up the next! On Tuesday Walter went off guinea pig shopping with his family (to a market) and was gone all day, which made it very tough, but on the plus side he ate some soup with blood and intestines in it. Though he said it was quite nice. With Elena and family i eat a lot of soup...daddy probably wouldn't cope...and something else that's a cross between watery porridge and rice pudding, amongst other things. And i think I've decided that i don't want to be a teacher.
