|My new breakfast friends|
About 5 steps out of the dining room, while I was walking with my plate in hand, a hawk came out of nowhere and took the bacon right off my plate midair. It knocked one piece of bacon onto the ground which a second hawk promptly picked up while I was still trying to figure out what had just happened.
After she finished laughing, Gretchen took it upon herself to fix me a second plate because at this point, I was sitting at the table staring into space drinking my coffee.
Today, we had two appointments. First, we went to the Coca-Cola bottling plant. (Can I say one of the things that has really amazed me is the permeation of Coke and Pepsi logos on everything that will hold still here). When we got there, we were warmly received. The plant is huge, with about 1,200 workers here locally.
The plant manager showed us to a room full of women in their work uniforms, after walking us past a wall full of plaques for quality awards and explaining with pride what the different plaques represented.
