We had a table full of friends to say goodbye to! True to being South-African we did it with a table full of our good food! It was a delight seeing the people enjoying the new tastes and flavors.
The kid from across the street, Cesar, gave me a memory, I want to share with you.
|Marco and Cesar|
He dished up, and was enjoying his meal, and I was keeping an eye on every one`s plate to make sure they have enough. Cesar sat back with a big piece of the famous Maize dish on his plate. When I wondered whether he was ok, with my Spanish lexicon, he told his aunt softly, that he was saving this for his ‘abuela’! (grandmother). My heart nearly broke, and I filled up a big container with a lot of food, which he took to the family immediately!We said our goodbyes to the neighborhood, and Diovellis dropped us at the bus terminal to Panama!
