A fellow traveler and I were fascinated with the way the many of the christmas trees were decorated in Puerto Rico. Many were covered in parrots, so we took a drive to The Lazy Parrot in the hills of Rincon thinking they MUST have some. It was alovely drive but alas no Christmas tree parrots. The gracious owned did tell us where to find them though, at the Christmas Store (Almacen Navideño) in the next town, Mayagüez.I bought about 10 or 11 parrots and 5 small birds and somehowmanaged to squeeze them all into the suitcase, eek. Where there is a will there is a way lol!A fellow Brit in Yellow Springs, Karen, made me this super oven glove. Okay it is just an oven glove but there is something special about getting a present that someone took the time to design and make. She got a hand made dickie bird and one of those parrots all the way from Puerto Rico which now sits in her tree pictured below.
