¡Hola amigos costeños!
Things sure have been quiet on this forum!! I guess no one likes the Gulf of Mexico, or else everyone knows everthing there is to know about it(or doesn't give a damned!).
Well, life goes on in this part of the world, and I have been working hard to try to get bored here, but it never seems to happen. There is always something going on in Xalapa and the surrounding area, like Jazzfest, or a theater encounter, a 30 folklore harpist summit, or an architect seminar, or ecosystems development, or mushroom collecting, or God knows what else, but I never get bored! We have mountain biking, walking, ornathology, knitting, bridge, Danzon, singing, ceramics, jarana and jewlery making talleres, kids going to school with mothers honking their Hummers, transitos blowing their whistles, smog pumped out of buses, PRD meetings blocking traffic as we ride our bicycles through the crowd, hundreds of butterflies fluttering into the air as we bicycle to Coatepec on the dirt road near La Orduña. Of course you can flee from the two dozen gringos in Xalapa to other villages like Cosautlan, Teocelo, Naolinco, etc., etc. and work on getting bored there.
Anyway, folks, please let me know if anybody is alive out there.
¡Muchas gracias, y me quedo a sus estimados ordenes!
¡Portense mal y cuidense bien, sin mirar a quien!
