We arrived in San Ramon around lunch. The FEV guides, walked us to our host family homes where we would stay for the next three days. The walk through the village of San Ramon was enlightening with people working, people walking, children playing, and the sound of music and nature everywhere.
Roommate, Sally, and I were the last stop, staying with our wonderful hostess Neyda and her daughter Gabriella. After a warm welcome and a quick opportunity to drop our bags in our own Cabana, we sat down for lunch. Neyda prepared a wonderful meal of chicken, cabbage salad, fresh tortillas, tomatoes, radishes and star fruit from her garden!
Neyda’s backyard was a haven for wonderful fruit, today showing the star fruit, passion fruit, and mango. I wish I could grow these in Colorado!
After lunch, it was time for our walking tour of San Ramon, visiting the church, parks, etc. After another wonderful dinner, we were off to the community library for a welcome ceremony with local dancers.
Another wonderful day and experience. Tomorrow we will observe paper making, jewelry making, and local cuisine.
