Hiking, fall???, and chocolate!

We had a fun day exploring the island on Saturday. We drove 1 hour into the mountains and then hiked into the jungle for about 45 min to a natural spring/ start of a river. The water was a beautiful blue color, and very cold! It felt so good after our rigorous hike in the 90 degree sun!

We were also excited to get a little taste of fall this week. We had honey crisp apples with caramel and candy corn, among other things. It has been hard to wrap our minds around the fact that IL is in the full swing of harvest with fall weather and it feels and looks like summer here.

Few other random facts…..
I went to Western Union to buy frozen chicken legs.
I am known as Madame Scott to all the Haitians. They don’t even know my real name.
I received a bag of chocolate chips this week and can’t wait to make cookies!
