I was right - Manuel and the team have been hard at work and the tiling is done. And look at the pretty new gas range! Cesar is polishing the cement on the shelves and putting on a primer so they will be ready to paint. We bought the paint today, no mean feat when you consider we were ordering several different colors and we wanted to come back later to pick them up. Between the clerk's good humor, a Spanish-English dictionary he kept behind the counter and our own feeble efforts , e.g. "regressar esta tarde?" (What is the word for "mix"?) we managed to get all of our paint. Also, the refrigerator, bed, bookcase, washer/dryer were all delivered today and tomorrow we start to move! Hooray!
