Firstly, I went to the Portsmouth market for the first time since we returned. I was excited to find out that tomatoes and breadfruit seem to be back in season (for those not keeping track: tomatoes and breadfruit went out of season like two months ago. The impression I'm getting is that there are multiple seasons for several foods throughout the year), but more importantly there was a new kind of fish. The flying fish!
|Weeeeeeeeeee! Chomp chomp chomp.|
I didn't even know flying fish was available in Dominica. It's a big deal in Barbados (it's on their currency), but I assumed that Dominica was too far north. I've had battered flying fish before, and it was tasty, but I'm excited for this one because I bought three pounds - about 12 small fish - all of which will have to be gutted. Denise, whose background is far more interesting than mine, already knows how to do that, and will be teaching me soon. Yum.
Secondly, our hockey season started today. We happened to play against a pretty aggressive, obnoxious team, but did pretty well despite the loss. I have higher hopes for this season than last, after our team was dismantled by a series of crappy miscommunications. It's pretty exhausting, playing in 30+ degree sun, so I'll have to get in shape. That is, unless, they get going on that indoor rink here. Then we can do this:
|Quack! Quack! Quack! Quack!|
