Since I wrote that last post, my blog got sick. I hope it wasn't with the swine flu. But I'm now on my school's network, so I'll give you some more details...
Last weekend I went with my dear friend Kim to Puebla, a gorgeous, colonial city about 2 hours from Mexico City. We went a little crazy at the hippie markets there, buying lots of scarves, jewelry, and the pottery that Puebla is famous for (see below). Kim has gone home for the weekend to her bro's college graduation, so she was definitely stocking up on gifts. :)
It was a blast, we did a lot of relaxing, and it was SO good to get out of my house after 2 weeks of quarantine. We went on a tour of the city, but because our trip was so short, we didn't get to see a lot- so I'm going back this weekend. My French friend, Nina, lives in Puebla but I didn't get to see her last weekend, so we're going to hang out this weekend. :)
Like I said in my last blog, I'll be leaving Mexico in a little over 2 weeks. I'm excited to go home, but especially after going to Puebla last weekend, I'm reminded of how much there is to see and do here, and the incredible people to meet. Kim and I wanted to be friends with all the hippies ;) People have really taken the time to be patient with me, and share their stories with me, and that has been a huge gift.
