Museums, shopping and TV

At our host's home we started the day watching TV, looking for the interviews we did yesterday. About 9:30 we all got excited to see the TV spot. It showed many of the Ambassadors and hosts being interviewed at the dinner last night. Kathy Hart did a wonderful job representing us!

Around 10 am we all met at the National Ethnographic Museum where Chris Flowers, a Peace Corps volunteer, led a tour. A few of us paid 75 cents to use our cameras in the museum. It was a very good museum with displays covering natural history, geography, paleontology, cultural history and more. We were there about 2 hours and then many of us walked about 20 minutes to lunch. Unfortunately a few were not feeling well so they had to rest.

Lunch was at Pizza Mania where most had thin crust pizzas but they also have a full menu from omelettes to roast chicken. It was good food although there was a mixup on a couple of the orders.

After lunch we split up with some heading home but most going shopping or walking downtown. 

Marty, Kathy Hart and Chris Smith went to a TV station where they were interviewed on a live show!!  It was a good opportunity to promote FF and the local organization CDA. We were a bit nervous to start but it all went smoothly and time flew by, partially due to the need for Mariana to interpret.

Afterward many of us met in the park for ice cream (50 cents per scoop for a cone).

The Meyers and Smiths went to their host's cabin where they had barbecue, smoked fish and more great conversation. The evening ended with us looking at the stars before heading home.
