Veracruz - Mon. 11/2 '09

For those of you following my adventures here in Veracruz, I'm sorry to have been out of touch for the past few days. I took off on my own to a lovely little town about four hours north of here known for two things: its more than 2oo shoe shops—most of them owned by the cobblers who make the shoes—and its treasured traditions for celebrating Day of the Dead.
It was an unforgettable experience on which I promise to report as soon as I've had time to transcribe some notes and choose a few telling photos. Please stay tuned...

Your English students definitely had a lot of questions about the weather and how it made you feel. They also like your descriptions of the different culture. You make them want to travel, too! The photo is great! I'll make sure they look at it in class tonight.

Hey Cris - Sorry for forgetting to post a special note for our class last night! My long post about my Day of the Dead weekend is now up, so maybe we can talk about that next Wed.
Hope all's well there.
