So, like Tia mentioned, updating around here might be spotty for a little while. For me, it’s because I’m both recovering from the trip and in the midst of starting my new position at work, a position which affords more job satisfaction but less free time. One of my major vaguely-worded new year’s resolutions is to work at budgeting my time better, so that I don’t waste so much of it on stupid things–there are a lot of things I love to do, and I don’t do many of them as often as I would really like because I’m also terribly good at spending consecutive hours on stuff that is only vaguely amusing.
So! Hopefully I’ll get a new schedule straightened out for myself so that my blog posting doesn’t suffer here, and gets better over at Nisaba Be Praised. (Which, look! I posted an end-of-the-year-ish book meme borrowed from Ruby Bastille! Go verify that I am, in fact, still nominally a book blogger!)
Resolution yammering aside, I have many pictures from Guaymas! Most of them including Tia and/or Braden and/or Mike, because y’know, when I don’t have a tripod I don’t end up taking many pictures of myself.
Tia has pretty patterned tights! I think she said she got them for Christmas? Also, the back of the knee is a very underappreciated part of the body.
In point of fact, Tia wore a lot of new clothes to Mexico, on account of how her mom gave her tons of awesome stuff over the holidays.
Are you enjoying the gratuitous Coke shots? We stopped by one of the everpresent Oxxos a couple of times and traded in whatever bottles were clanking around the car for new full Cokes. Ahh, Mexicola.
I also made Tia pose in front of a lot of stuff. It’s not vacation in a foreign country unless you take pictures in front of things!
Alex requested more sunsets, and I am happy to oblige.
Braden’s sunset pictures are doubtless prettier, but as far as I know he hasn’t uploaded his shots anywhere yet, so, you know. Deal with it.
I don’t think we ate out quite as much as my travelmates would have preferred, but on Mike’s and my last night we did enjoy the local cuisine at Loncheria Dony, which has amazing steak tacos and an ingenious item called the crazy potato: a baked potato split open and filled with table cream, Chihuahua cheese, steak, corn, and green chilies.
Also ingenious: putting kids in plastic bubbles and throwing them in a wading pool.
You can see all the pictures I’ve uploaded from the trip so far here, including way too many pictures of my dad’s and stepmom’s new dogs. But, you know, in Mexico!
