The people here are just wonderful! They really love kids. Reagan can't walk further than a block without someone trying to speak to her or pat her head. After we first got here, she tried walking around with her arms covering her head so no one would pat it, but I put a stop to that. I'm also really surprised by how active people are here. I don't just mean that people walk and bike everywhere to get around but the running and biking trails are full of people running/biking solely for exercise. There are also parks everywhere with exercise equipment for people to work out. It's such a nice thing to see and helps keep me motivated - especially on those 90 degree/90% humidity days.
|This picture wasn't taken for my blog or I would have made sure to pose and look like I was hard at work. Instead it was just me and Reagan playing around on the equipment.|
Here is a (bad) picture of a monkey that you can see hanging out in the trees. I don't see them all the time but when I do, I just want to stop what I'm doing and stare. So cute! I've heard about a family of toucan's that live in a tree close to my hotel and plan to stop by and try to see/photograph them but I forgot their address. As soon as I get it, I'll be there - looking like a tourist! Oh well, it can't be helped sometimes.
One other thing I have to mention but didn't get to get a picture of - two guys with a jack hammer getting ready to blast a sidewalk. Their footwear of choice? One had on a nice flimsy set of flip flops and the other was bare foot.
Love this place!
