Palapas… I am very intrigued with this architecture!  Some are so intricate, I would like to watch one being woven together.

32 degrees in Puerto Escondido today….I know you all are feeling so sorry for us :)

We took a hike today on a path that follows the cliffs along the ocean below the lighthouse. The walkway is a work of art with stonework and arches – an adventure!

A few days ago I ate a macaroon (it was delicious!) but something hard in it broke one of my fillings… ouch, it hurts!!  We decided to find a dentist….

It is a bit of a challenge when your dentist only speaks Spanish…. he ended up calling someone on the phone who could translate for us…Dr. Jesus is going to give me two crowns (ha!  I am looking forward to the day when I can cast a crown at the feet of our Lord Jesus – 2 Tim 4:8!!!!) - the only downside is that they won’t be ready until Saturday…. no guacamole and chips for me for a few days!!!  Scott felt left out, so he is getting two crowns too.
