We have the great fortune of spending some time in paradise, more precisely Puerto Vallarta, even more exact the Grand Luxxe resort in Nuevo Vallarta. Andy and I have come to Puerto Vallarta at least ten times so we are not exactly novices, and Belén was here with us three years ago, but it is Eloise’s first time and it has been fun to see her reaction to so many new things all at once.
When we first arrived and were riding in a shuttle to the hotel, Eloise pointed out each bus she saw. “Bus,” five seconds later, “Bus,” three seconds later, “Bus.” She probably said the word “Bus” fifteen times in a ten mile stretch. Needless to say in Boise, she seldom gets the opportunity to use this word and her repetition reminded us how much more prevalent buses are in developing countries than in the US.
