One thing that has already happened that we were not expecting to find was a bird flying around in the house and no one seemed to notice or worry.
For our third breakfast, yes third breakfast, Colette prepared us some fruit juice and some massive Papua fruits and really sweet bananas. Never tasted fruit like it!
