New Shoes for the Pop-Pop
Tuesday we stayed close to home. Ron and I walked down Leather Street to see if we could find a wallet for me and sandals for him. A few blocks from our square Ron found a shop selling huaraches which he liked better than the other leather sandals. The guy told him they were $42, so he came outside to find me. I was in another shop looking at wallets. I found a green one for me and a purple one for Sylvia. Ron wanted me to go back to look at the shoes and see what I thought. I told him he should buy them, so he made the guy an offer of (he thought) $35. The guy grabbed his calculator and typed in $25! So Ron snapped them up. When we got home, Bill and Verda were about to go out shopping, too. So Ron and I both took naps. For dinner Verda made eggplant parm, and we finished up the salad from the night before. We went to bed early, so we could get up at 6 for our trip to the coast. Our plan is to go to Puerto Lopez and go to the "poor man's Galapagos."
