A quiet day today, we walked down to the small shopping mall near the hotel and spent some time looking through the bookstore. We had been told there was a nice book there talking about the history of Colombia, but written for children – and they had an English version too.
We bought that book and a couple of others and then wandered back to the hotel.
Didn’t do much else – sat around on the front porch enjoying the day and I took advantage of the sunny weather to get some photos of the local birdlife, and we all slept most of the afternoon.
It’s a bit quiet around here at the moment – the Finnish family who adopted from Chiquitines the same day we did have gone on a short trip to San Andres for a few days. That just leaves us, the other Australian couple, the Canadians and the Italians. Apparently there is a new family arriving today sometime and another on Tuesday, so once they visit the orphanage we hope it will be a bit more lively around here.
