Now you're alone

That was a parting remark from my Canadian neighbor the day before they headed for the airport and the flight back north.  She's the same one that refuses to think in pesos for the 5 months they are here.   It is a fact that all the "gringos" are gone from our community but I still have a bunch of good neighbors.  

Burro

I didn't catch Burro in a way to show off his ears best but this is pretty good.   As he hangs out the car window he gets lots of oohhs and aahs like something never seen before.   Burro is my neighbors dog and his first name was murcielago (bat) but Nahima couldn't pronounce it so Burro it is.   A short quick name is better for a dog.

The Internet was off and on over the last week but really not that bad.  I just had nothing to say which can be a good thing.   Going back to school shopping, trying to get CFE here to clear the neighbors tree off my power lines and catching up with things not done because too many people in town.  Semana Santa vacation is just about over and we survived it.  

We've not had a totally clear day for over two weeks and the humidity has gone way up.   The ocean temperature has gone up as well.  No signs of rain here but the highlands are getting some earlier than normal.   Year of El Nino with signs this early ..... I don't know.   I just have a feeling.

Our weather, so far, has been incredible. 50's at night and low 80's during the day. That's the way it is in the rainy season. I too have survived Semana Santa. It was a zoo here! Geez.

I seem to be the odd one out on the Easter crowds. I love being part of them. But, then, I love the crowds of Mexico City, as well.

On the beach or water park crowds are fun. Traffic and shopping .... not so much

You might suggest her parting line as the epitaph on her tombstone.......it tells so much about her.

Here in the next san miguel we name stray cats after workers' nicknames.......Cocho, Poblano, Flaco.
Have enjoyed reading about Nahima in posts.

They just don't get out a lot when here. You leave a house unattended for 6 months in the summer here and it takes months to get it under control, preparing for the next 6 months and they are still building.

The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
