On Saturday, we braved the traffic to go to a different mall than we're used to shopping at. We had a map. We also had GPS coordinates. No such things as addresses around here. In fact when we were buying internet time, we were asked where we lived. Our minds went blank. I said, "Well, we know how to get there. We live on such and such a road." And that was good enough!
Anyway, we had entered some coordinates for this mall that we got from another senior missionary. So we were following the GPS and I was following the map. When they disagreed, we decided to follow the GPS. Not a good idea. It took us all over the place. Finally, we followed the map like we should have done in the first place. And there was the mall!!
What should have taken 20 minutes took over an hour!!
|We love these tiny bananas. So sweet and tasty. We buy these from a roadside stand on our way home. Look at that cute "double banana".|
|Poinsettias grow here. It was so tall that I could hardly get the camera high enough.|
|Here's Elder Torrie in his non-missionary clothes (i.e. our walking clothes) beside the poinsettia tree. It's as tall as he is.|
|A flock of geese to greet me as I walk.|
|I can't get enough of these gorgeous bougainvilleas. They grow as a tee but also as a vine so they grow all over the other trees. So pretty. And so many different colors.|
|Does anyone know what kind of tree this is?|
|Here's a close-up of its interesting needles/leaves. Be sure to click on the picture to enlarge it.|
