I had a brainstorm when I realized that the little snack bars here are often called Quiosques (Portuguese for Kiosk if you didn’t gather that!).
(Here’s little Lulu, looking doubtful I was showing him the right stuff and then thrilled when we hit the pocket!)
So three days in a row I took one room at a time to the somewhat local Quiosque for Quiejo (cheese) and crackers and a soda which doesn’t start with Q but is pretty much a sure thing at a Quiosque.
While I didn’t get a photo in front of the Quiosque sign (it was too close to the busy road to risk it), I did get plenty of shots of the unexpected bonus – a pool table!
I love playing pool! Even more, I love surprising the boys who were certain that Mana Laura would NOT know how to play pool!
Manuel 2 was pretty excited for me when I made a shot! The boys loved running around to the side to watch the ball fall into line.Basically the Tias and I played one another while giving the boys lots of chances to shoot. Not one of the three Tias had ever played before, they were so cute to watch!
I love, love, love this action shot when Mana Zaida, you can barely see her on the right, made a shot. They were so excited!
