I wish I could record the sounds and smells of this place. It’s incredible. I was woken this morning by a cacophony of birds. During the night there were dogs howling their happy tune.
I slept reasonably well. I woke up a few times, but was always able to fall back to sleep fairly easily.
The Mennonite Guest House is amazing. The grounds are like a park. Just outside my window is a hibiscus tree with big pink flowers. I don’t know the names of most of the plants. Somebody mentioned bougainvillea and about 10 feet from me, there’s something that looks like “mother-in-law’s tongue”. I’m sitting at a patio table about 20 feet from our door. There’s a “monkey puzzle tree” just behind me. (Dan, of course, knows its official name, but I know it as a monkey puzzle tree.)
