Yesterday we had a rough night. Elsa had a cough, which translated into pain due to the incision from the operation. We could not fall asleep until very late. To top is off, today, the second day of what passes for Summer, turned out to be a dreary day. It has been raining for several days and it has been rather cold. So the whole crew, Elsa, Filipa and Maya, spent the afternoon sleeping.
Tia Miete came by in the evening and brought some caldo de mandioca, which made Elsa feel a lot better. She swears by its soothing and pain releaving qualities.
