Tico Tales: Tortillas, Huevos, and the Tico Way

Virginia stopped by again today, her arrival once again perfectly timed to coincide with the onset of my afternoon nap. This afternoon, we’d been expecting a delivery of dos cajas de huevos (each caja contains 18 eggs) from another neighbor down the street. Turns out he wasn’t feeling up to it today, so our huevos will be delivered mañana. This is the way of the Ticos.
