Here are some scenes you missed. They’re not quite worthy of their own blog posts, but entertaining nonetheless.

Patricia’s nephews taught Dave a game where you whip a pointed piece of a tree branch — sort of like a dreidel.

Here I have a conversation with Rosa Maria’s turkey. Sadly he’s no longer a pair, as his novia swallowed a nail and died.

Here’s Dave harvesting some fruit to throw into our mandarina mermelada.

And this one shows the final step in making panela — keeping the extremely hot goo cool enough so it doesn’t solidify in the pot. Panela is the product of sugar cane juice.

Scaring cuys so they run and hide.
