Tuis is the town that we go to school in. It is about a 1.5 mile walk or bus ride from where our house is.  We live in La Selva.  This weekend, a very nice girl who is attending our school, took us on a tour of Tuis.  She showed us several places that I am most certain we would never have found on our own. Including this…


This guy has made his backyard into a kid’s dream!  Several huts with thatched roofs, several rope swings, this tree house, a see-saw. The kids thought it was pretty cool!




The following morning she invited us to go with her host family to milk their cows.  So at 6 am we were waiting at their gate.  Up a steep hill in the coffee plants we came to a little shed where the cows would come in to be milked.  Obviously the gentleman had milked cows MANY times! He was so fast. He was also very nice and let the kids try. Then he gave us some fresh cow milk!



I am sure not all of our weekends will be this interesting, but grateful for a gracious people who are making our stay here even more enjoyable.
