festival-cont.


街のお祭りはそれほど大きくなかったけれど、日曜日に開催されるトライアソロンの為に沢山の観光客が「ぼけっ」としていた。ラム酒の生産が18世紀の頃から盛んな地域なので、サトウキビとココナツをトラック一杯に積んだおじさんと助手の少年がラムココナツのドリンクを作って売っている所を発見。サトウキビをその場でつぶしてジュースにしてしまうあのシンプルな機械がかっこ良かった♪

Gardening

Did you know that for some herbs, you can just clip the stems and plant them directly into the soil for them to grow roots? So we tried it with basils and seems like it really works.... found lots of plastic pots laying around the property that we moved into...i think we will be making a garden next weekend with tomatoes, mini tomatoes, jalapeño, cilantro, basil, thai basil, lemon grass, okra, green peas, water melon, onions, daikon radish, thyme, tobacco, poppy, strawberries, shiso, cucumber, coffee....and some more i think.

日本食が食べたい


小さな頃からお茶漬けは永谷園のインスタントお茶づけな私。カリブ海では日本の食品はほとんど手に入らないので、ロスを発つ前に自分に送っておいたモノのうちの一つがお茶漬け。

でもお箸忘れちゃった。

ので、庭に生えているレモングラスを切ってヤスリで端を整えてお箸の出来上がり♪

happy dry tree

i moved to a new apartment with a very large yard. it is mostly very green except one tree. it looked like it was loosing all the leaves. but after watering it everyday, it bloomed pretty yellow flowers this morning.
