Then while we were pumping the water I received a text message inviting me to Santa Cruz for a birthday party for my friend Gabriele. Without the truck I would not have attended as I would not take Dod down the hill just for a party.
The party was great and I have not laughed so much in many, many months.
Outdoor patio and kitchen at Gabi's house
Left to right - Glenn, Delia, Gabi and her dog Mouse.
They are sitting in the kitchen at Gabi's house. This is the house that I described in an earlier post that rents for less than two hundred dollars a month including utilities. Two bedrooms, two baths, a huge yard and patio and on a very quiet street. The street goes past a mangrove lagoon on its way to the ocean. Only about 300 yards from the front gate to the beach. You are probably tired of hearing it, but I love Mexico!
BTW Gabi is moving from this great bargain to house sit for a Canadian couple who are heading north for the summer. Cost of her new residence right on the beach with air conditioning and swimming pool is zero!
