We have been advised that things will be at a standstill for a while since the person our coordinator needs to communicate with is currently on vacation. Hopefully they will be in a position to advise us what to do next week. For now, we are remaining in Petro and waiting for news.
Today, we met up with a couple from Louisiana and their adorable 4 year old son. They will be leaving next week and provided us with lots of insight. It was really nice to be able to chit chat in English while Yannik played with their little guy.
We also found the other coffee house that had been recommended to us and we were not disappointed. Coffee here is really affordable. $2.50 for a cappuc. not bad at all. Few people frequent coffee houses and restaurants. We were told that the salaries here are minimal although prices are affordable. It therefore explains why the restaurants are pretty much all empty.
