The weather change has slowed me down a bit though. I've acquired the gripe, or a cold, that I can't seem to shake. I mentioned it to one of my senoras, Nora, that I wasn't feeling great and she provided me with some jujos to make a remedio, which I talk about in this video:
It did the job, if only for that evening. I might have to see if I can find more malva and I'm pretty sure I have a guayava tree in my yard. Between all the mate, hot cider, hot chocolate, and coffee I'm drinking, I'm definitely staying well-hydrated!
Things are coming along with my demo-plot. I've worked with Luis for a few hours the last couple of days on clearing out a small portion of the field. I wish I had a brush-hog! Sometimes I really miss modern technology!
|So far we've had nothing but shovels to remove all this brush|
Other than being sick and working on the demo-plot, I don't have that much else going on right now. Things in the garden are looking pretty feo... I have to figure out what is wrong. I would post a picture, but it's really ugly. I think it's just bad soil. My friends Elijah and Maggie are coming to my site next Thursday, and I'm going to rely on Elijah's expert gardening knowledge to help me out. I do currently have my worm bin completed (I'll do a video about that for my next blog), as well as two compost piles, so I'm well on my way to recuperating my soil!
I had a great birthday celebration in Asuncion. I'll probably do a blog on that later in the week.
