We stopped at a gas station to refuel, and bought these crazy fruits from some street venders. They’re “mamones chinos” (aka rambutan) and are delicious!!
Traveling through farmland.

4) A cute little prayer chapel in someone’s yard

Dr. — has worked all over the US, and she said the only place she’s heard “vet” used as a verb is in Virginia. For example, people around here say things like “I’d like to make an appointment for Dr. Bossman to come vet my cattle” or “the breeder said this puppy was fully vetted.” It usually means a vet has examined, dewormed, and vaccinated the animal in question.
Is this really just a Virginia thing? I didn’t notice one way or the other up at school in Pennsylvania lol
