That will be the name of the game here for the next month!
The courtyard renovation project has begun, at the same time as the mason is here repairing the salitre on our walls. The salitre project should only take a week or so but the courtyard will take a month.
I went to the Department of Agriculture with a man we were referred to for help with intricate Spanish conversations. We haven’t talked to the last person we need to talk to yet but it sounds like it really won’t be a big deal to bring our parrot Tiko down on the plane from San Francisco. He needs a current health certificate, and then at the plane the Dept. of Agriculture gives you the import permit. Hopefully the fellow we still want to talk to won’t have anything different to say. We really miss our bird, and I am looking forward to a little shopping in San Francisco for a few things we need and can’t find here.
The picture above was taken from our roof early in the morning. The foreground is a bit dark but I love the sillouette of the Cathedral with the sunrise.
