Yesterday, despite the heat, we took a drive out to the country house. Here are a few photos -- it's BEAUTIFUL there. All the plants have either gorgeous flowers or huge leaves. Definitely tropical. In the photos you'll see B and me along with his family: mom, dad, brother, and his girlfriend. In this first photo, you can also see "caju" which is where cashews come from! Each fruit bears one nut (which you can see hanging from the bottom). No wonder cashew nuts are so much more expensive than peanuts.
