Milk Delivery

Lately the routine has been to wake up at 6:30 to the sound of a horse trotting up to the front door and a "buenas dias" from our neighbor and friend Hugo. Since he's had his calves (both of them), he arrives to deliver our liter of fresh milk 6 days a week. It's a good time of the day to talk about the weather and learn a new spanish or q'eqchi' word.
I don't think we'll be able to find this kind of service when we're back in the states. When you eat bananas from your backyard with fresh cream and local honey, its hard to find a reason why you'd want to go back.
