Today we traveled approximately 3 hours east from Hermosillo in search for a ranch we are considering to rent in April with some people from church. It was quite the journey. We took the Jeep as four wheel drive was necessary to access the supremely remote location. However, the place was really beautiful and we are really looking forward to stay in there a few days.
They have a couple horses there and a pig, none of which can be ridden.
They have two cabins that can accommodate approximately 20 people. There’s also a common area with a kitchen and a dining area.
We took Joaquin and Charlene with us.
A friend from church turned 30 today. The food trucks are a great place to celebrate.
I bought this bike over 20 years ago. It’s moved with me many times. I don’t use it often as my gut can testify. But it remains a pretty decent bike despite the neglect and lack of maintenance. Yun got a bike for her birthday last month and as such I wanted to get my bike operational again. We spent hours the other day looking for a shop for a tune-up. Unfortunately, they’re so backed up and I didn’t want to wait a long time to get it done. Fortunately labor rates are so ridiculously cheap here the cost itself is nothing so it’s something I hope to do in the future. Even so, I bought a new seat and some new grips which I’m installing today. The seat I pulled off was the original from decades ago, yet remained in pretty good condition.
This is a picture from last Friday.
We had our friends Sergio and Nadia over for dinner last night.Yun made a spectacular squash soup. Normally I don’t like squash, in any form. But the soup she made was truly spectacular. And the perfect compliment for that soup was the loaf of bread seen in the photo above.
It’s rather quite hot today. Much hotter outside than it is in the house. For this reason I’m sitting outside reading and preparing for a study this evening. If I’m outside, the dogs want to be outside. This is a rare occurrence for Tila.
We went out to dinner tonight with our friends and neighbors David and Ari. They live in the house next door to us. We decided on a new restaurant in town that turned out to be pretty good, but with some strange combinations.
Last night we stopped at smaĺl micro brewery in town to visit our friend Sergio that works there. We enjoyed a sample of everything that they offered and also got a tour of the brewery that was very interesting. Along with a Jenga tournament, we had a great night.
Asael and Lupita came over for dinner a couple nights ago. We made pasta which took hours but was fun to make.
We went to Holy Cow a couple nights ago. This is one of the only places in town to get a great hamburger. Strangely they added an option to their menu of a hamburger with cheese and bacon and two Krispy Kreme donuts for the buns. I thought the idea sounded really repulsive. But the waiter told me they’re actually quite popular.
