We are really enjoying living in Camiri. It is a small town in comparison to Cochabamba, but we like that a lot! The people are more laid back and friendly, the drivers are less rude, but still Bolivian!, and the overall pace of life is just slower. The only thing I miss about Coch is our friends, of course, and the ease of shopping. Rudi and I are getting the hang of shopping here, but all of the markets are "open air" and much more "native" style! We are making a list of things to stock up on when we go to the big city of Santa Cruz...
This blog is a peek into a typical day for us here!
Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, if he doesn't forget, we get fresh cows milk delivered to our front door. We hear the loud "moo" that Domingo, our milk man's horn puts out, long before he gets to our door! The kids all run out to meet him and let him know how much milk we would like for that day. He also sells yogurt that his wife makes. It is really tasty, our favorite flavor is peach. By special order his wife will make it plain, which is my personal favorite. All of the yogurt here is very runny and is meant to be drunk more than eaten.
