Dia de Obama

Even though Javier made arrangements for the speech viewing over lunch, we awoke to CNN in the dining room or dining area (all open-air), Somehow the owner arranged for the connection. So.....I opted to stay here all day and skip class, lunch, and the tour. Well, actually we ate lunch here so no skipping meals.

Two other ladies stayed as well and it was terrific. No one at the hotel speaks English and I was the one who knew the most Spanish. I'm not sure what we said, but we are all very happy. After the speech, Hector the owner, had Rosa the waitress/server/everything else prepare special watermelon drinks with fruit garnish to celebrate. The photograph says it all. Pura vida!
