We are staying in a big house with showers (cold water), bunk beds, and a TV! ohh and each room has a FAN...which is really nice. Across from the house I can see a horse in the pasture!
This place would have been awesome to run at but....we all know that isn´t possible right now =(.
Yesterday, a couple minutes after we arrived, it started pooring! It was SERIOUS RAIN! In the middle of the monsun, we went out to lunch...which cost $1.85 for rice, beans, salad, meat chunks, and a banana.
For dinner I had SANCOCHO with arepa de CHOCOLO!!! >It was really good. I thought about la finca en Colombia...we have an arepa de chocolo stand nearby which is really really good. (we actually drove almost to Chitre which is really close to my site....=).
This morning we learned about GOATS (cabras). It was really intersting. I felt really cool because I had used all the machines that were in the the reproduction lab while I was at UF. When he was talking about artificial insemination...I knew excatly what he was talking about and i understood why he was having trouble getting the embryo´s to attach in the receptor goats. The vet asked me if i wanted to come back in a couple weeks when they planned on started the second rounds of inseminations. I would really like too. It seems a lot simpler than inseminating horses and cattle...FOR SURE. Plus, Goats´milk is really nutritious and apparently you can get up to 6 liters a day from a goat....which you can sell!. The goat project seems like a really simple project to start at my site. I am intersted in finding out more info.
The rest of the day we spent out by a rice tank. Since i´m hurt, I couldn´t fanguear (stomp around in the mudd). With pleasure I sat by the tank and cleaned rice seeds...=).
I feel like i´ve been here forever and it´s only been ONE DAY!
MEALS have been very weak! I hope dinner is better today...if not...im going to be a very sad camper...lol.
(sorry again for no pictures....I´ll try another day)
