Yesterday's post was about waiting for the third ridiculous incident. Well, we are not waiting any longer...
Miguel went off this morning to buy cochinita pibil for our guests and to pick up a few things at the mercado. I puttered in the kitchen with a couple other sides and then sat on the couch under the fans to cool off. I heard Miguel's footsteps coming down the road, which meant the golf cart had let him down.
We had just been saying how well the cart was running, but this morning it was stop and go for a while and then finally - stop. We are so used to this that we don't even get upset any more, we just leave the cart wherever it stops and start walking. Later Miguel will go to the mechanic's house and tell him where the cart is, and the mechanic will fix it, and we'll be good for another couple of weeks.
What's that saying? It ends something like "Accept what you cannot change..."? Since a new golf cart is not an option, it's this golf cart or nothing. So we will stick with this cart, and just accept that there will be frequent inconvenient breakdowns that don't cost much to repair (normally), and that's just how it is.
On another note, it's a gorgeous sunny day, our guests leave around 11, and after that we'll be enjoying the hammocks, the pool, and the terraces all afternoon. It's Sunday - our day to just hang out and do nothing (or almost nothing). Yippee!
