You are probably asking yourselves why am I talking about salt? Well, when we remodeled the casa we were advised to install a water softener system. It helps to keep the calcium deposits from building up on the fixtures, the tile and the interior of pipes. The system uses sal for the processing of the water. We use about twenty-five kilos (55 lbs) per week at about 43 pesos per twenty-five kilo bag or for my peso challenged friends $4.00US per bag.
Yes, my knee was on the steerring wheel! LOL!
I have never asked how many different types or sizes of salt they have.
This handsome man ("guapo" in espanol) is Ricardo who is the boss ("hefe" in espanol).
I feel fortunate meeting Ricardo as he is one of the nicest people I have met since moving here to Merida. He speaks pretty good ingles and he practices his ingles on me. I can only hope that one day my spanish will be as good as his ingles.
He is kind in allowing me to practice my limited spanish with him.
Well, after visiting and getting caught up he has one of his employees load up the salt and I'm ready to head back to the house and unload. Good to go for another two months.
Thanks Ricardo! Muchimos gracias!
