A woman approached me, while I was reading about his visit, and she said, in English (am I that obvious?), "You should go into the church. It is very beautiful inside. It's an open church, you can see inside. There is a very large .... inside." She couldn't quite find the English word, but I think she was trying to say organ? I replied with a thank you and that perhaps I'd come back when properly dressed (me underdressed in my exercise outfit!)
|I'm sad I didn't photograph yesterday's lunch,|
so today, I took two photos.
Time to get the kids out and about. Park time. We went to the big park near us and it was very crowded. The kids have a very hard time getting a turn on certain equipment. Either, the cultural behaviour here is, "I'm on it and I'll get off it when I please, even if that's 20 min from now." Or if it's that we don't speak and can't easily ask, "May I have a turn, please?" Either way, there are people (including parents with their kids) who stay on this one basket-swing FOREVER even if you're lurking nearby staring at them.
So, we decided to go back to the park across the street. The smaller one with the steep slide. This one is practically empty, so a lot more freedom to take turns on different items. I promised the kids we'd go back to the big park another day, when the kids are in school so we can have as many turns as possible.

|Basket swings, similar to this one, are at a lot of the parks around here.|
This is the one is located at the little park (made of scratchy ropes),
but the kids really want to go on the bigger one at the bigger park.
After the park, a quick stop at the market (yes, it does seem like we go every day) and then home for dinner. Chris is out with co-workers tonight (one of the other co-founders is in town from San Francisco, so the whole team is going out to dinner).
P.S. Yesterday was apparently the last day of summer. I wore a sweater and jeans all day today.
