So far, a great day. Woke up early, made some coffee, had some cherries, and Maria arrived. We hit the market here. She knows EVERY-freaking-BODY in the farmer's market culture, I swear. I love Maria. She also made the fabulous suggestion that we go to the quarry that Philcito first took me to a couple of years ago. We hiked in, swam for an hour or so, hiked back out and stopped at a scary gas-station/oldmantobaccobaitgunshop. DC for me, agua for Maria and back to the house. Gave her some cherries and chard (my chard is apparently the envy of the town), and sent her off.

Then I spent the rest of the afternoon either resting or obsessing.

Off to the American Tobacco Campus. See you around.
