Yesterday was Joel's 12th birthday, and it was fun, but also stressful for him. We started the day in Santiago, took a bus down to Viña, found the apartment, moved in, went back to where I stayed last week to pick up my bags, came back, then went out and had sushi for his birthday dinner. I did find a beautiful cake that afternoon-tres leches, yum! It cost more than dinner, but we got to have some for breakfast and lunch too :-)
Joel was really tired this morning, but once he was up, he was pretty perky:
We went to the Saturday market today, and bought lots of fruit. A kilo each of strawberries, peaches and bananas. Also a 1/2 kilo of blue berries. That is more than 7 pounds of fruit. And it cost about 6 dollars. I was planning on juicing some of it, but alas, the blender in our not so lovely abode is not functional. We will be eating a lot of fruit tonight, along with salmon and carrots, which we also got at the market.
