A different kind of Easter

W's brother (who is studying to be a chef) was in town this weekend and offered to cook us a very special Easter dinner. We loved the hands-on experience! (Check out my apron ;) ) Me: "Do we need a spoon or something?" J: "No.. Using your hands is what gives Mexican food its flavor." These are called sopes and huaraches (because of their similar shape to some popular sandals...

Cultural Night – PV

This month, our city is hosting cultural presentations once a week that represent all the Mexican States. Last week, our state and city were the featured guests. As always, Mike captured some excellent pics that night! This group danced with cups of water on their heads. Oops. :) I imagine it's as hard as it looks! To end the dance, they began spinning so fast that water was flying out...

Many groups were represented in the parade: businesses, indigenous tribes, preschools, and more. Our language school held a sign and participated in one parade, though we opted to take pictures of the event instead. Songs were sung...

GDL Roadtrip

This week, we took a 5 hour scenic drive through the mountains and quaint villages of Mexico to visit our teammates in Guadalajara. Enjoy some of these notable sights from the trip: We saw several teams of torch runners along the way. Here are a couple of unfiltered pics: I mean seriously. Then Google maps took us here for about 15 min: Yep - that's the middle of a corn field, not another...
