I had to go to the market today. I thought I would find an umbrella for sale there. I went with a very large black plastic bag over my head as my makeshift umbrella. No umbrellas were for sale in the market. I ran met another woman, also using a black plastic bag to keep off the rain. She was more creative. She had cut a hole in the top of the bag for her head and was using it as a raincoat. I complimented her on her sense of style.
It was good to get out of my little casita even though I came home very wet. I bought some videos and a book. I didn't take any photos because I didn't want my camera to get wet. I had a delicious lunch at the Boston Deli. Gigi loaded up my plate and then insisted that I take home extra food for this evening. I don't know what I would do without Gigi. It gave me such a lift to be around her and to have one of her meals. Her restaurant is my home away from home.
