Completos with Joel, At the Right Time!
In theory Joel was done with school at 1:30 today; he told us that was what the schedule in the classroom showed, and that is when he got out last Wednesday. So when I showed up at 1:30, imagine my surprise when he really WAS done at 1:30 (well, I think 1:35, but who’s counting?). My plan was to take him out for completos for lunch and then to get the emergency info card Cecile had made for him laminated (plastificacion-ed).
The only problem was we were going to get lunch around 1:45/2:00, which is the normal lunch (almuerzo) time around here, so places were crowded. We eventually did find one upstairs, a place we had passed before and which I believe Cecile said she ate at before we arrived (sorry, forgot to get a picture, maybe later). This time we were going to do completos the right way, mayonesa and all. I got the Completo, and Joel got the Italiano. I believe the only difference was mine had cabbage/sauerkraut while his had lettuce.
We both agree these were better than the ones we had before, and not just because of the mayonnaise, but the mayo definitely helps. And despite what it looks like, they were surprisingly not as messy to eat as you’d think. Our theory is that the mayo really ties everything together, like glue but tastier.
Long, Lean Bottles
Joel has noticed that the soda bottles here in Chile are thinner and come in different shapes. If you read my post from yesterday you saw a picture of one. Well today I noticed that our bottles weren’t even the exact same height. It doesn’t really show up in the pictures, but it’s definitely there. Not sure of the reason, or if there is an actual purpose, just something for us to notice that no one else does.
Pigeons, Why Did It Have to Be Pigeons?
Actually the seagulls are more annoying (hopefully more on that later, if I get some good audio), but Joel for some reason is infatuated with the pigeons. Really? Pigeons? Sadly, yes. So we’ll end on this note:
