Warm at last
Many houses in the Andes are made from adobe, hence they warm up as the sun heats them and the heat is retained.Where we live now almost all houses are cement and much colder. Without central heating our house really is cold even when it is warm outside! When we looked for a house we really hoped to find one with a real fireplace so we could make fires. That was not the case but some very generous missionary friends have loaned us their woodburning stove. Our new skills include making fires at high altitude, chopping and drying out wood. How wonderful to have a warm roaring fire in the house in the cold evenings!!
