a whole wicker basket full of the hugest, most
juicy, luscious strawberries you could ever
imagine and they were the size of baseballs!
No need for sugar or anything. The strawberries
were gone in an instant, so they went back
for more. The baby parrots were estatic with
the purchase and ran into their nest to tell
their mom. They lived on the side of the road
under an A-shaped conglomeration of branches.
Their huge nest was on the ground. Seems there
were no predators on this island. As we can
see from the taxi drivers, cats and mice worked
All of a sudden a horn blew and a blue jay announced
for people to step aside. When they did, what they
saw was amazing. A long line of tortugas del mar
(sea turtles) came walking through the market,
each with a wicker basket tied to his back.
Felipe and Forest presented passes for the group
when they entered the gang plank gate into the
market. A 200 pound Toucan took the passes from
them. He looked like a porter on a train or a
bellhop in a hotel. As they came close to the
main hustle and bustle of the market, they could
hear people ‘hawking’ their wares. Well, they
were hawks, that’s why they were hawking their
wares! Silly! The vendors were mostly hawks,
some blue jays and roosters: birds that squawked
and made noise. Julio held on tight to da Muff
because this was a crowded, noisy place; market
day I guess.
