Feb. 11, 2014 (Day 5)

Began another beautiful day with our usual 7:00 a.m. Prayer & Reflection.  Breakfast this morning was very different.  We ate masa with herbs, masa rolls stuffed with tomato, vegetables and chicken and topped with cheese and onion, similar to a tamale, as it was cooked in corn husks.  A sweet bread, similar to a cookie, was on the side.  We’re really enjoying all the different local foods!

Our day ‘on the job’ was very fruitful.  Everyone works so hard!!  In addition to our RHPC group and the hired masons, volunteers from the town, men and women, helped out, too.  We’re a well-oiled machine!
Lunch was a tasty ‘stew’ of chicken, carrots and potatoes with pasta on the side.  Another lite lemonade drink and cantaloupe.  Oh yes, tortillas!

Finished work at 4:00, stopped for cold drinks, and were home and into the showers pronto (see, you do understand Spanish!).  Dinner was Italian style tonight:  spaghetti, bolognese sauce with vegetables and garlic bread—muy bueno!
