Friends are staying there and I was quite surprised since it's way out by the Prepa. I went out to visit and took Yare out for her job interview. Yare is my 14-year-old neighbor and this is her first job. Today is also her first day. She goes to school in the afternoon and works in the morning. She'll be cleaning, making beds, doing laundry and a little babysitting for a 2-year-old. Hope it goes well for her.

Lots of people working in the field either weeding, picking or watering. Haven't seen any kids carrying watermelon around the neighborhood trying to sell them like in years past. Will keep my eyes out.

Glen and I were sitting on the beach yesterday at Tito's when this young kid came by selling papayas. He wanted 10 pesos each for them so yeah I wanted one. The people next door had just bought one and the kid still had 10 pesos in his hand when he talked to me. All I had was a twenty so I made sure we did an exchange because I thought he could very well walk away with 20. Not a big deal but better to keep him honest.
