Back at home, at last!
I can't say I don't enjoy the trips but it sure is nice to lay ones head down on the comfy pillow, have the shower blast in a certain way and fidget around with the intricacies of the house, our home.
We take a long time coming, never driving more than about 7 hours in a day the longest drive is from Ciudad Obregon to Mazatlan.
Then of course the drive from Guadalajara to Morelia seems like it takes 38 hours, when indeed it is only 3 or so.
Must be the anticipation.
Got stuck in traffic in Morelia,
stopped at WalMart, stock up on stuff for the first few days getting situated need the necessities.
My wife demands her crema, and plantains.
I get the ginger root and red onions.
Kaching! Got out of Walmart for less than 700 pesos this time. Must of forgot something real important.
Theres plenty of time for that, now that we have a super store in Patzcuaro.
Now it back to some normality a visit North was bittersweet.
Some good , some bad, glad to return to reality or at least what I perceive it as.
The North Country is total devoid of that!
I was bad I read the newspapers and can't believe how much spending a financially strapped entity is spending.........
I know I couldn't run my old business that way, they must know something I didn't.......
I was never good at making up big stories with no substance, except the time I was a salesman for a HiFI store in the 60's.....
There was a lot of woofers and tweeters to sell and it was a new business......
Now I need to be sure the coffee machine works right, all is well with the little piece of earth down here.
At least for awhile.
