I think it has been over my target of a week for a new post.
We are settling in some more, and life is rolling pretty smoothly. The big events since the last post were: starting Kathy process to get her residente temporal though a process called Unidad Familar. She will have her own card independent of mine, but I had to sign a statement saying something along the lines of taking care of her financial needs. It will cost approximately 1,000 pesos more than the regular fee for a temporal card because there is a charge for her change of status from Visitante to Temporal.
In the meatime we went to Mérida’s Slow Food Market a week ago, and will return today. Cheeses, local organically grown lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers and other veggies, meat (including some delicious rabbit sausage), eggs, cheeses, baked goods and prepared foods by a variety of vendors. There is a coffee shop at the location where we bought some delicious Italian and Espresso roast coffee to bring home. I think we have found our coffee supplier. Here are some photos:
Another big event was the arrival of our crate from the USA. 210 cubic feet of stuff:
Instead of driving around the block when they drove a block too far, the driver backed the truck up, blocking traffic, which lead to a symphony of honking horns and waving hands
Checking off the box numbers on the inventory list
That is it for now. Time to cook breakfast and prepare for a return trip to the Slow Food Market
