A taste of Yelapa…

Apologies for the delinquency in beach photo uploads!! We have a couple friends visiting this week, so we have been busy with a flurry of taco-eating, pyramid-visiting, tequila-drinking, lucha-watching, bullfight-attending, etc. For an added bonus, one of the visitors (college friend James) is taller than us, which has provided an exciting chance for me to not be the *most* stared at person on the streets of Mexico City.

I don’t want to keep all my cold-climate friends in suspense though, so here are a couple snippets to tide y’all over…

And a view from the other side of the bay; our place was the yellow house tucked amongst the trees towards the left

    Hmm…this morning when we got up the temperature was -16F and if felt like -31F outdoors. We drove 300 miles in those temperatures with blowing snow the last 100 miles. What’s wrong with this picture, as compared to the 3 pictures above?

    Julie-
    What resource do you use to keep abreast of the DF goings on? I’m frequently reading/hearing about events that I would like to have attended/seen/participated in if I’d only known…
    Thanks,
    -M

    Hey Martin! Here are a few of my best bets for things happening around Mexico City:
    http://www.chilango.com
    http://www.donde-ir.com
    http://www.reforma.com (though you need a subscription to see anything beyond the homepage)
    http://www.eluniversal.com.mx
    http://www.guiasdf.com/ (just heard about that one)

    We subscribe to the newspaper Reforma for Fri-Sat-Sun; their Friday issue has a “Primera Fila” section that sometimes has goings-on about town.
    The other blogs on my links list also sometimes mention things happening in the area.

    Those are my best hot tips! Good luck!! :)

    Mom– hopefully the lucha libre mask keychains you received make up for this…?? ;) Love you!
