February 20, 1943

No bombing has taken place since February 5 and what a relief! Yesterday at a distance we saw three submarines on the surface of the water and the youngsters were quite excited, as those are the first we have seen. (From our hilltop home we can look out and see the ocean).

Not far from our place is a cockpit, with a small food stand and we were able to buy some pork and fish today. (Cockfights do not occur every day, and the stand (a very small one) is not open unless there is a cockfight). Some days it is very difficult to find food and I have to draw on my canned goods.
