Happy Birthday to Me

In lieu of the witty posting about some aspect of Mexican life that you were expecting to find here, I will instead take this opportunity to post a self-aggrandizing Happy Birthday to Me announcement for this Tuesday November 25th. I am excited as John is taking me to Pujol tonite, some trendy restaurant here in Polanco that is reputed to have an “…individualistic and insightful approach to Mexican cuisine.” (thanks, OpenTable)

Anticipation is high, as one of the common items on their tasting menu is chapulines, better known to many as the common grasshopper. As per my last posting, I have generally shied away from the wonderful world of insects thus far here in Mexico, but perhaps that will all change tonite??

Anyway, my head is currently swimming with too much macroeconomics-related info from my MBA class homework, so instead of words I will try to entertain with randomly selected photos of the birthday girl herself.
