No problem!


The players on the back of a flatbed truck

Hi there everyone!

This has been a busy week for picture taking . . . I have put quite a few on here. Enjoy!

The next couple are from a funny episode last evening that may give you a little sense of life in Mexico.

One of the traditions during the Christmas season are "posadas". They are essentially a reenactment of Joseph and Mary's walk in search of an Inn. During this particular one (see the photos) the truck the players were riding on broke down. Without much hesitation, people that were walking behind the posada ended up pushing the truck through the posada's route through the city. Amazing!

The Jardin all dressed up for the holidays

I want one!!

Mexican Sushi

I finally decided to give into my need to taste some sushi! We actually have two places in town (can you believe it)! I had a little lunch there . . . not too bad. Frozen fish and not the best I've ever had, but it certainly was in the shape of sushi! For an afternoon I indulged!

The city on a beautiful clear day

VIPs in training

How cute is this parade?!

Had a good friend visiting this week! It was great being a tourist again . . . and it was a good week to come! It wasn't as crazy as September, but there was a great children's parade (check out the pictures) and a small music festival. Who's going to visit me next?!

So San Miguel actually does have a social life!!

Last Friday evening was amazing. Started out at a party hosted by a friend of mine who makes amazing furniture. The party took place in his factory outside of town and was the "place to be". Afterwards a group of us went back into town and started bar hopping. Suffice to say that I din't make it home till 5:30am! Haven't done that for a long time! During the evening I met some really fun and interesting people . . . I seem to be building a social group! Hmmm! Maybe I won't be leaving anytime soon!

This next week I have a friend visiting. It will be so much fun to show off the town. I have been here long enough that I might even be starting to take things for granted!

Still warm here. Days are beautiful and nights are just starting to get crisp.

A bunch of high school girls who wanted to practice english with me in the jardin!

Well . . . believe it or not "the book" is almost done! I had some great feedback from my book mentor (a guy I met in San Miguel that has published) and I'm putting some finishing touches on it before I start sending it out to collegues for review! Exciting! I can't wait to actually have it published and see a actual book with my name on it. Been a dream of mine for years! So start saving your pennies and dimes to buy it when it comes out! (smile)

Tonight should be fun! My new maid turns out to also be a chef! She is going to cook this evening! Mmmmmmm.

I thought about buying a motorsycle again this week. I'm on the fence as not having a vehicle does limit me to a certain radius around town. However, I am walking more than I ever have before and feel pretty great! We shall see!
