It is just over a week now, that we are living in Itaparica, and we are trying to act normal for a change. Marco is very busy doing his exams, while we are hacked into some WiFi network on the island. He decided to do two papers per day. He finished his Maths paper this morning and only Science is left for tomorrow morning. I did realise that too much holidaying has made him lazy, and therefor I have decided to do a little more schooling with him. Maybe he is going to think life is as easy as school...you just cruise it. Or is it?
Johan is in front of the computer often working a bit and just to get in touch with our lifes again. He went to Salvador yesterday, accompanied by Joe to complete our Customs Papers. The two came back half way there. The Port Capitaine is still to be visited. They did though came back with their tummies filled, when they visited a restaurant where they ate at a buffet with lovely loacal food for about R65 a kg....that I believe the reason being not finished with the days task. He also mailed our broken AC/DC meter to New Zealand, costing him about R400 via the Post Office speed service. Hopefully they can repair it and we will be able to read our Amps again. We battle a bit without it.
Joe is loving every minute of his opportunity! He plays guitar, draws pictures, dream dreams and explore life as best as he can. How wonderful, just to be young...
I am trying to get Catlyn clean and organised again, after being on the water for so long. I even have time to spend on myself. One thing I am glad about is, that we got rid of our lizardy scaly feet while we were at sea. No creams or lotions or rubbing or scrubbing could make a difference. Not even the little miracle scrub from Game..the Perfectpedi made a difference to our heels. A week on land again and we can walk around with our flip flops...
ps. We are waiting for our first visitor. Elize, Johan's sister is coming from London to visit us for a whole 10 days! We can't wait to feel and hug someone familiar.
