Today I am home early, recovering from a bit of laryngitis so my communication for most of the day was via text messaging. It cleared up a bit yesterday, but I had meetings today and nearly lost my voice again. I enjoyed my lunch meeting today. Here are pictures of me with my hosts. We ate on campus, at one of the outdoor tables. I'm eating rice and beans with plantains (arroz y habichueles con amarillos.) We had tropical rains this afternoon; I'm glad that I was able to come home before the downpour.
