I went next door and there were some chicks. Estevan
liked going over there to see the animals. I saw some pigs. We saw a small calf that was
really cute. For breakfast one day we had some fresh eggs from the chickens and we had the
foot of a chicken in our soup. We drank some corn chicha at Antonio's house.
I really wanted a charango and when we went to Ecuador
we got together and slept over at Fernando's and we got a charango. I like the charango
and I still play it sometimes. It reminds me of the men in white pants.
