It was a very pleasant day for a drive and we enjoyed seeing something other than city. The grass is green and lots of it.

The last Saturday of each month, the Dutch Reformed Church sponsors a craft fair in the area. It is a really big affair and the artisans are hawking their crafts. They are very persuasive and will barter. I picked out the little giraffes but Stanley liked this hippo. I hope he will not anchor our suitcases down when we leave because he is one heavy little piece of wood but he really is kind of cute. We also bought an original painting for our wall but Stanley has to figure out how to mount it. Our walls are very plain and white so we need something to cheer our apartment up. They also had all kinds of fruits and vegetables at the fair. We bought huge mangoes, lettuce, zuchini, and tomatoes there. They are much fresher and cheaper than at the grocery store. The mangoes here are so very, very good.
