Well it s been awhile hasn t it. I got caught up with all the fun in San Cristo during Semana Santa (easter). Hoards of people go to San Cristo during this holy week, as it turns out. More venders, mostly of food. The food was basic to the area, but man to they make a good hotdog. The vender says stuff for awile and you smile and nod then for 10 pesos, you get a regular hot dog loaded with fillings and hot sause. There was a parade with scantally clad woman dancing, and a fair. Oh yes! Surprisingly, it was pretty much what I m used to back home, but in Mexico. In Mexico, they serve you beer. Bumper cars were awesome, though I felt a bit of a target, hit the gringos! As you enter the fair you find out where the t.v. sales man came from. Their selling blankets, like the guy at the auction, selling, never taking a breath, unfoldding and refolding, throughing them back and forth with the conspiror who ties them up and hands them to people as the pay, never knowing how they knew that the peolpe wanted blankets in the first place.
There was a bull fighting event, I didn t go cause we got there late. Other than that I did some shopping and now I m in Zipolite on the beach. Doing nothing. Maybe something tomorrow but no promisses. After this beach, another one. God help me!


  1. Hey there baby bear!

    It's good to hear from you again, and it sounds like you're still having a fabulous time! How's the Spanish coming along? Wow! checking out the beach scenery, doing nothing---Quisiera dos gaseosas, por favor.

    Take care, mi hijo!
