Hello friends! I've been missing in action the last couple of days since moving into my house. Actually, it took me a while to figure out how to connect to the internet here! I am within walking distance to Wal-Mart (yes, there is a Wal-Mart here; I think it's been around for just under a year) so I went over there the day I moved in to pick up some things I needed. Okay, bottled water, laundry detergent, cooking oil, a papaya and a numbert of misc. items can get quite heavy! Luckily for me, they have a free shuttle van and I was able to get a ride home and it only cost me a tip for the driver! How great is that????
Melisa was wanting to know if I can get American food here or if there are any fast food places. Well, there are some Americans here who have opened restaurants (i.e., 60's in Paradise where the speciality is hamburgers, malts, and 50's and 60's music & memorabilia) but there aren't too many American fast food chains here. But, there is one, and I can see their sign from my mirador (that's an outside living space on the roof of the house). I'm going to go get my camera and take a picture so you can see it too!I used my camera zoom and then cropped my photo in Picasa so it looks like Domino's Pizza place is just next door but actually it's a little walk on past Wal-Mart. At least I'll be able to walk off some of those pizza calories! Haven't tried one yet so can't say for sure that they taste exactly like their counterparts in the US. Will have to report on that later! I had a good healthy supper last night. Grilled a piece of Basa (fish), also grilled some onions, and had a couple slices of fresh papaya. I was so glad to find the basa at Wal-Mart because hubby and I ate a lot of that at home. There's also a fish market nearby as well as a meat market.
Thanks for stopping by to visit!
