I'm in Guanuato, Mexico right now. Its good just to be taking it easy. I'm staying at my friend Kristin's parent's guest house. Normally, they rent it out, but vacancy this week and a free plane ticket, the chance to visit mexico with my friend and get away from Santa Fe's winter for a few weeks made the decision to come pretty easy. My cast on my wrist (from snowboarding) came off a few days before I flew here. It feels strange, but is healing well.
I'm lucky I get to do so much traveling and learning and simplifying and slowing down while doing so, more than I used to anyway. I'm learning how not to pack quite so much stuff in.
A horse just paced past my wind. I am trying to practice Spanish. Tomorrow, we leave Guanuato and head for San Miguel, just to see it, then on to Queretero. Then I go back to Guadalajara to fly out. Guanuato has been a cool place to see and hang out with all its windy, colorful colonial streets. We went in the Diego Rivera museum the other day and hung out at a hotel pool this afternoon. Its been a lazy vacation. I've also been working though - every day doing some freelance work, ads, media kits that sort of thing long distance. Its cool I can take my work with me. When I return, I will start a tutoring job through the rest of spring though for some extra income and stability.
2nd to last day in Mexico. Its gone by fast. I'm in Guanuato in an awesome eco-hostel writing on the roof top. Sunny, tranquil days. I love this town. Its hip, happy and cultural. Last night, Kristin and I just walked around the town amazed at how many people were out and about enjoying the night and the community. I am ready to go home though. I miss someone more than I ever have before and I can't wait to be in his arms again.
