It's a busy day here!
Everyone in town comes to the beach for sunsets, which means that instead of 1 person every 500 feet, there's 1 person every 200 feet.
Africa & Egypto Street
View from my apartment looking west up Egypto Street. That place with the blue awning has the best tacos in the world.
View from my apartment looking north. The hospital is to the right (not pictured), conveniently located next to my place.
It's a four-apartment casa. I have one, Paula (the landlord) has another, one is empty, and a friendly Argentinian man occupies the fourth.
My Front Door
The walkway to my door, which, as you can kind of make out, has a Mexican flag made of popsicle sticks on it.
My Dining / Living Room
If I'm in my apartment, I'm probably in this main room. Lord knows I'm not in the kitchen, and my bedroom (off to the left) is usually 10 degrees hotter than here.
Another View of the Main Room
You'll notice I moved one of my two beds into this room since it's cooler.
I have two specialities: eggs and PB&Js.
I only occasionally sleep there, since it's about 10 degrees hotter than the main room.
The lot behind my apartment. Paula said it's for sale and asked if I wanted to buy it. I declined.
The Side Yard
Paula keeps the property very clean. Every morning, she waters the plants, with Estrella (the dog) monitoring her progress.
Cuba Street Beach Entrance
The walkway to the beach off of Cuba street. There's a friendly family of lizards that live next to the tree there.
Plaza del Sol
The plaza of the sun. Without fail, there's always a fiesta going on here every weekend, usually a birthday party.
The street names are all countries. I live on Africa and Egypto. Also of note, there's no traffic signs of any sort here; they are not needed.
I thought her name was Escuela for the longest time (which translates to "school" in Spanish), until Paula corrected me. I guess Estrella, which means "star," makes more sense.
