Aniceto’s Pension rooftop 1

One of the things I like best about Aniceto’s Pension is the view from the rooftop.

It also has great places to sit and write.

Today I visited the neighborhood near the lighthouse (parola).

There is a little resort where cottages built over the sea can be rented for a day of lounging and swimming.

Add on a room and the cottage becomes a home.

Kids here love to play on bancas.

Maybe that’s why they can scamper around them so well in rough seas when they grow up. Hard to imagine just how well unless you’ve seen it.


  1. Dr. Ernst,

    This pictures are wonderful, and it’s helpful in imagining what you are doing thus far. I also wanted to tell you I saw bonobos for the first time this summer and thought fondly of our class studying them.
