My friend´s son came to pick me up before lunch. He has just arrived from Ecuador where he has been living for a few years. He plans to spend a couple of years in Chile and then go to Australia as his wife is from there. He is thinking about what to do here for a living and I told him that he could help me with my garden as Leticia and I are not able to do some of the garden work. Lunch was delicious and after it we went to the concert. It was a folklore concert and many of the songs were songs written by Violeta Parra and Victor Jara, two Chilean folk writers and singers that are known world wide. They also had some of their own compositions and they were very good. Andres took me home and here I am, mylotting. What did you do today?

I never heard about Violeta Parra and Victor Jara, but I am going to search YouTube to listen to some of their songs.

That sounds like an interesting live he lives. I hope he is able to find full time work there before going on to Australia.

Sounds like you had a lovely day. I did not do much today, just slept and wrote a little. I have a broken ankle and can't do much at the moment.

Yesterday went to Church and it was a great service, and then for dinner went to a nice restaurant to eat, but the food was sub-par there this time. (They were getting a lot of complaints about their New cook.)

Actually, I didn't really do a whole lot today. I chilled with the kids for a little while and I also got all of my stuff ready for work tomorrow. Sometimes supervising a crew requires a lot more work than you would think that it would. I was off today but actually spent over two hours working.
