one less room-mate
this morning the woman at la fonda i eat breakfast at decided i should have echilladas verde con huevos - and she was right. that and a coffee was mucho bueno. i really like her and she lets me fumble through my spanish as i order what i'd like and answers questions when i have them..i showed alex where it was so he could get a snack there as well - and in fact he did while we were there...he'll be back.
school was great today...some days are better than others, as in life, and today i felt good...i still don't feel like i can string together a fully functioning sentence but it's better...poco, poco, poco...
ok. i'm beat...each day here is big...and i need a little small right now...
mishi and garbs saw the menu shots i took at la fonda i go to every morning and asked me to try a skimo. i wasn't sure what it was but knew it had milk...and it was flaovored and cold...and it was. it was a milkshake, kinda. more just cold milk, ice and flovor...a nice light after school drink.
i have been varying my walk to school and really like the different calles i can walk down on the way. rich colors and i have to admit it's far cleaner here than i remember.
today down at the zolcalo they were setting up an art installment that was made from food crates. one was quite a large set-up, almost like a huge box made from boxes...the others we various shapes all held together with zap straps.
some children dressed in traditional garb.
the young woman at the sorbet shop was wearing this cool necklace made from a type of bean that had all been colored.
