Dispatches from the road from our wayfaring travelers.
Hola, amigos. Thanks to the hooked up hotel in Veracruz and the easiest internet connection yet — also Lani’s notebook, I have been able to write emails, post on Facebook and realized that I have been getting it out to only to a few friends and family. Barbie asked a question and I’m posting my response, because it’s the quick version of how things are going so far.
This trip has been really productive, and here’s why: (a) there were a LOT of contacts recommended by Juan Dies and Victor Pichardo, and most of them have panned out in some form (b) Shana is pretty much fluent and Jason is getting there, so there have been many opportunities to share along the way; and (c) Anacron is a superhero, disappearing and reappearing just as he is needed, with handfuls of contacts and opportunities for one or more of us to experience. Jason and Anacron did internet radio in Morelia a few nights ago. Also, the areas we have been in are quite rich with Old Town School-ish escualas. The level of discipline is much higher, and mostly (but not all) geared toward professional employment, but we have been absolutely blown away several times, and have two more formal visits to go. They all go long, too.
The answers to Barbie’s questions are yes, no way, and I wish. It’s a guitarron(sp?)
Now that I’m finally in WordPress, I will attempt to post a photo. Mine seem to be all of buildings. . .
