We’ve been here two days now, and things have taken on a slower pace already.
We had our first classic Latin American experience Tuesday morning with the shower. Maria’s cousin and father have been working hard here trying to set up the house they have next door for us, and the plumbing needed some work. For a while, they got hot water when they flushed the toilet. Maria got in to take a shower Tuesday morning. I was holding Sabine, getting ready to hand her off to Maria when the shower got hot. I thought it might be only a minute or two until the shower got hot. It was a lot longer than that and Sabine peed all over me.
By then it was almost ready. I went to rinse off what I could of Sabine in the sink. When I opened the faucet, the water suddenly reached a nice hot temperature. Maria took the rest of her shower with Sabine and with the faucet running. I showered the same way.
