Our Casita is on Ice Box Hill and the streets are steep. Mike and I are getting used to the climb, but our friends are usually quite tuckered out by the time they reach our front door. The steepness of the streets is also a challenge for the local children at times. Playing baseball or soccer is an art - miss that ball on a downhill throw or kick and you have to run a long way to catch it!
We were amazed a few nights ago when we came across this bunch.
There were sitting on an assortment of items - a lid from a paint can and a flattened 2 litre Coke bottle to name a few! After much jockeying for position they were off, careening down the street at full speed, roaring with laughter.
This picture is rather blurry, but I have to use it anyway. She was so cute, and had absolutely no fear. Guess it's all about keeping up with your big brother!
I have no idea how they survived, or what their mothers said to them when they got home!
