The 10th day of our Laughter Tour began with Tosha flashing this compelling but devilish grin! We were staying in Nicole's house and this is her daughter's room.
Here I am in her lovely living room.
Tosha was happy to check her e-mail.
Then we went exploring the town of Pucon. Ironically, we ran into Alejandra and her daughter who were downtown doing the very same thing.
Here is a tented "open air" market we walked through.
Then we went to a fancy chocolate and coffee shop. Look at all these amazing delectables!
We made 3 salads to take to Sonia's birthday party. Here I am with the salads, all ready to go to Sonia's house.
Then, we arrived at Sonia's cottage. This bright bowl of fruit was the centerpiece of her living room.
Sonia is also an artist. This painting of hers hangs above her couch. She also has a studio/gallery space in the downtown are of Pucon.
This plate from Sonia's set is hand-made without a wheel, which was the traditional way of making pottery in Chile. She is proud to own this special set.
Almost instantly, we vanquished the cake. It was a light, fluffy orange frosting with layers of yellow cake. I'd never tried anything quite like it.
Here's Sonia and her cat with their friend and landlord, Elisabeth (who invited us to come to her house and see her llamas the next day—stay tuned for photos of that adventure).
And it wouldn't leave but just kept staring at me. What I didn't realize is that it was waiting for me to turn the water on so it could get a drink!
When we got home, William's nose was running from all that time with the cat so he tried out a Chilean brand of nose tissue called Elite (menthol scented).
We felt grateful to have experienced a day of laughter, friendship, celebration and more.
