Garry said this morning, that it started out as a very good day. First night with no ankle or foot pain, so good sleep. Coffee in bed. A hot shower with water that stayed on. And he got in Howard’s shorts. But I digress….
Let’s go back to yesterday. We arrived in Manta at 2 p.m. Not a problem and at least 8 seats empty on the plane that holds about 30. Howard and Tanya met us at the airport, we had a late lunch then went to their place. While unpacking Gar discovered that he had not packed all his underwear. Then he discovered he didn’t pack his pain pills. Just a couple extra that I made him throw in at the end. Well, fortunately, on the underwear part, Howard had a brand new package from Sears, so that is how Gar got in Howard’s shorts..
More TMI Tanya arranged for a masseuse to come and give me a massage for $10 this morning. She has a massage table in their office room. But when Jose got here, she was at the chiropractor and he didn’t speak english. Howard wasn’t sure how much Tanya disrobes, but he thought down to her panties. So… what the heck. But Jose stays in the room while you ‘prepare’ yourself. Good thing he was short, stout and older… So, we are doing fine until he asks me toturn over. hmmmmm… ok, I do and he places a towel on me and massages my legs. Then he pantomimes to take off the the towel… double hmmmmmmm. What would Tanya do? Well, Ifigure I will never see him again,so I say yes. Well, I survived and he did too. Pretty funny!
Just got back from agroup lunch of 14 people. One of the gringo couples was heading back to the US today so it was a fairwell lunch. More on that later.
Howard and Tanya have a great place, but we brought the rain. Howard has never seen it rain in the daytime and it poured all morning. Taking lots of pics and he has picassa so I will see if I can download and post some.
