The restaurant had excellent Wi-Fi reception so this morning Cal worked on posting photos and the blog. He posted the events for 2 days. We really have been having issues with good reception for posting, but I have continued writing.

I also found 1 English magazine – an “O” Magazine from January 2014!! But I enjoyed reading it. Finally we packed up and left our lovely country setting at 11:30.

We actually did not see any cherry trees, but lots of peaches and some pears. Our host said that years ago apples were big in this area, but now China has taken that market, so they have changed to other fruits. Also walnuts – “nuts that look like a brain” – they did not know the English word for this type of nut!! It was an interesting drive.

I have not said anything on these blogs about the town/city dogs! Every town/city has stray dogs walking around. They are healthy looking dogs, but are not owned by anyone – a lot are German Shepherds or about that size of dog. We understand that they are fed left over food from restaurants. They have all been taken to vets to be neutered, given shots, and dewormed. They seem to walk with pedestrians at crosswalks, are friendly, and well behaved. But they will be laying down for a nap along the street. They are often playing with one another in the parks, and you do have to watch for poop on the sidewalks. They do not seem to bother anyone, and we have never seen one hit by a car (cars wait on them and maneuver around them!). There were lots of town/city dogs in San Pedro de Atacama, Chile (northern Chile).
When I write again we will hopefully be in Cordoba, Argentina, where we will be both Thursday & Friday, leaving Saturday morning for Buenos Aires.
