Life Lately, in Photos

on

Here’s what I’ve been up to lately:

I went with Carlos’ mom to a retreat during Lent at a monastery with a beautiful garden.

Sometimes I help Carlos at his photo shoots.

I teach English 2 mornings a week to my friend Pau, and we’ve been having class in her backyard because the weather is always perfect at that time. Some day I want to take a nap in her hammock.

I try to go to as many classes as I can at my gym, and my favorite is the “Ritmos Latinos” dance class. It’s kind of like Zumba, and the (male) instructor really likes ending songs by doing the splits.

I went to my first baby shower and we ate sandwichon (pictured below), and basically laughed for 2 hours straight over snacks and baby bingo. No offense to anyone, but I really can never remember having fun at an American baby shower. Just another thing I love about Mexico!

It’s tradition here for people to buy ramos for Palm Sunday, so I did too.

This is where I go to church-isn’t it beautiful?

Carlos and I had another bowling night with our friends.

Pau and I went out for sushi-my first time having it in Mexico!

My roommate, Rosy, invited to eat lunch with her mom and grandparents on Good Friday. Her mom made the most delicious fish!

Aww, a little Herbie I parked next to at HEB.

I went out with Rosy and some of her friends to this “country” bar/dance place with a live band. Mexico has lots of cowboys too!

I met Ana at work, and she’s so sweet. She also lived in Arkansas for a long time so she has a southern accent when she speaks English, which I love. We went out for sushi/Chinese food, too.

My first raspado of the year, guava-flavored.
