After breakfast, we went out to catch the bus downtown. While we were waiting, we watched a man in the palm tree, trimming off the coconuts and some of the fronds and lowering them to the ground. It seems the resort does this before the coconuts are very big and/or ripe, so no one is hurt by falling coconuts.
I also watched a hummingbird chase a butterfly away from his flowering bush, not once but twice! He also chased away another hummingbird. Very feisty!!
Once we were downtown, we found one museum we wanted to visit - it was no longer a museum. It had been turned into a restaurant and wasn't open until 6:00 pm! We stopped in at a very artistic shop with many different kinds of masks and paper mache dragons, etc. We did visit the Archaeological Museum, which was very small. We had a lovely lunch at Angelina's Kitchen before returning to the gelato shop for more gelato. Yum!
As we walked the streets, we saw some great graffetti and a few other interesting signs. See the photos!
As we took the bus home I sat beside a young school boy and tried to talk to him. He said he did take English in school, but his English and my Spanish were probably about the same level, so we really couldn't communicate. But we had some fun trying.
After another yummy shrimp supper, Donna and I tried playing Scrabble with a Spanish set. There were different tiles - like one that is LL and RR and CH. And the letter distribution is different as well. Challenging but fun in away. I think we'll go back to playing Scrabble on the computer.
