Despite the connotations, running errands is not a bad thing. In fact, on a good day, I LOVE it. Checking out what’s new at different shops (who got in a fresh shipment from the US or new fruit from the mainland), chatting with some of my favorite people – like Evalia and Adam at the Greenhouse or Samir and Mahmoud at Caye Mart or Maite at Harmouch Hardware and getting lunch.
To the gas station for gas and diesel.
We stopped in Harmouch Hardware to talk about and get pricing on aluminum hurricane shutters.
Bottom line: EXPENSIVE!
Weather looking questionable and getting worse.
We stop into the small store on Back Street for all sorts of stuff – from rice to watermelon. RAIN!
We head next door to some of the best food in town. I’m craving comfort food and the ULTIMATE is soup – today’s special is COWFOOT.
I LOVE the broth – dark leaves of local oregano, all spice berries but the foot? It’s like rings of meat jello. (The “cowfoot” is actually the ankle -rings of gelatinous grizzle and dense bone)
