Travels, Day 17, On The Way To Guatemala

Mom's log continues:
Date:  July 5, 1972
Place:  Plaza Motel
"[Dad + Brother] took Bike to Kawasaki place.  $5.00 for complete service check.  We went to Grocery store + market.  Got fruit + potatoes.  After dinner Linda + Sharon took us around the city to look at houses.  We saw one that was terribly dirty.  Another nice one but sort of crampy feeling.  We saw the one yesterday again.  Looked the nicest.  Also saw a 2 bedroom apartment - Nice but small.
Sharon is very nice - from Des Moines, Iowa.  She + [Aunt] write to each other."
House hunting is a difficult job.  There are so many things to consider when searching for the perfect house.  Now, imagine looking for a house in a foreign country and not knowing the language.  I have renewed respect for my parents.
