October 14, 2005

We are here for the school year. Ray is 8 and we want him to learn to speak Spanish while he is young. Dave and I are learning as well, though we expect Ray to catch up with us and leave us behind forever very soon. "What did she say?" we will ask him. He will translate.

The vegetable market is down the stairs and 2 blocks away. Grab a plastic bowl and pick out your food. Nothing is shrinkwrapped. There are no prices posted. It never seems expensive, especially after shopping at Howser's in Haines all summer. We have learned to shop frequently. The food is fresh and doesn't last long at home. When you buy bananas, you are committed to eating bananas. Soon.

More later...
