However, I am a Californian. When I am home in Guava Gardens, I go over to adjust my heater all the time. Doesn't matter if it is 70°F, I'll likely raise it to 72°F.
Why am I writing about heaters this morning? Because it is 57°F outside in Panajachel.
Mixed fruit and coffee
11:30am - I'm having a cup of coffee at Ricasoli in order to use the WiFi. Also to watch people walking by. On the way here, I bought a little plastic bag of mixed fruit from the lady fruit seller located near my hotel, on the main road thru town.
The last time that I ate at Ricasoli, I was served a bowl of vegetable soup with my supper. I asked what kind of soup they have today? "Cream of broccoli", the lady in the kitchen told me.
I ordered a small bowl.
Since arriving in the Town of Panajachel, I believe that I am eating healthier than I ate at my home in La Mesa, California. My breakfasts are especially more healthy because of the mixed fruit.
I am planning to adopt the same idea of eating what locals eat for my supper too. Soft tacos filled with perhaps BBQ chicken and vegetables.
Avenida Santander, the street with most of Panajachel's shops and restaurants, is usually very busy around noon. Today, it's different. There is no steady line of Tuk Tuk taxis.
What are shoppers doing this afternoon?

Price for peanuts?
How much should I pay for an ounce of peanuts from a street vendor?
5pm - Pollo Campero is a fried chicken place. Sorta like KFC. I ate at Pollo Campero just yesterday. And here I am again! Their fried chicken breast is really good!
There is a hot spot at Pollo Campero. I am making this post using that spot. This is not the really healthy meal that I wrote about earlier! Just tasty.
Good fried chicken
3,361 Steps so far
My iPhone reports that so far today I have to double my steps to get to a 6,500 goal. Sundown is at 6:06pm6. This means I will be walking after sunset. Not into dark, however.
I don't like to be out after dark!
6:45pm - Made 6,885 steps! :)
Learned about peanuts
I bought a package of salted peanuts in a small grocery store. The selling price is 6Q for 2.8 Oz. [This price is equal to 2.14Q for 1 Oz.]
A young girl nut seller that I met this evening on Avenida Santander asked 10Q for 1 Oz.
I told the young girl nut seller, "No acuerdo!" [No agreement!]
