I have posted pictures before of the deserted house across the street from us and up a few yards where junk accumulates. The good news is that the house is no longer empty! The bad news is that those who have taken it over are a hodgepodge of homeless people! I don't know if you can see from this picture, taken ever so subtly as we walked to the office on Tuesday, the group of people in the house.
|Makes our apt look pretty good!|
|Sadly, this isn't the worst it has looked this week...|
|I should take a zoom shot of the work elevator SCARY!|
|She is always very pleasant and grateful for|
whatever Craig gives her, bless her heart!
The same day I about stepped on a rat the electricity had gone out in our house in the morning because I overtaxed it with a (purchased-in-Brazil) blow dryer. (I wasn't finished - What's another bad-hair day!!!) Poor Craig got it up and running only to have it go out again at night because I used the microwave for dinner. Doesn't bode well!
As we walked along the beach today (staying on the sidewalks!!!) I was amazed that in the middle of their summer vacation, the beaches are nearly vacant. This is the most people we have ever seen on this beach. Of course, we didn't go to the New Year's Eve party that we showed pictures of last week! The beaches are so beautiful, and people come here to Fortaleza to vacation, but they don't really go to the beach, unless there is a big party at night!!! I know what our excuse is, but wonder about theirs???
|The few people who are on the beaches are usually|
men and/or boys playing soccer! A few swim and even
fewer try to surf.
|A new pier that just opened - no guardrails - wonder|
if they are planning to put them up or not???
Our Love to All!!!
