Today I am anticipating Jim's return from Tokyo, his first trip to Japan. We Skyped a couple of times and he just loves it there. Thinking about food as we are headed out for a nice dinner in McMahon's Point tonight. We discovered this quaint little neighborhood recently and it's only a 10 min. walk from our apartment. It's a much quieter neighborhood than where we live on Lavender St.
Earlier today I received a notice from the mailman to pick up a package from the post office. I could barely read the handwriting though and had no idea where to pick it up! I asked my new friend Vera downstairs if she could read it and fortunately she recognized that it was McMahon's point. So glad I brought a copy of my lease or the gentleman at the post office would certainly not have released the package to me as I had no other way to prove where we live!
Yay, it was our modem so we could finally connect to the internet. That was the good news, the bad news is because everything is so slow here, we have to wait for a technician to come out to connect us. :-/ Today is the 29th and the tech can't get out until April 7th – ouch!! Back to the library and convenience stores for computer use for another week....
On a more positive note, we LOVED this Spanish restaurant we discovered on Blues Point Rd. in McMahon's Point, Delicado Foods. Photos below (taken at night w/ an iphone, NOT very good shots but still worth posting.)
