Here we go again...

The familiar sight of poor people wading though water. As many know from the news Mexico and Central America have been badly hit by tropical storms and hurricanes. Chiapas and Oaxaca have some bad flooding too. Hundreds of thousands have been effected, roads are blocked, and I think some people have died.

In lieu of the above paragraph, the weather has been cold and stormy in DF with a lot of rain rain rain. Here is a dramatic photo out the living room window of some storm clouds rolling in.
Well as you can see I'm back in the thick of things here in DF. The Distrito seems to be much the same since I left. The next important holiday is El Dia de los Muertos or "Day of the Dead" and some stores seem to already gearing up in anticipation. There is no thanksgiving in Mexico I'm told nor is there any Halloween so i won't bother anticipating the Turkey and scary pumpkin stuff although pumpkin is popular here along with zucchini and squash so I'll be getting my fair share of my deadly nightshades or whatever people are saying about those gourd vegetables now. Wasn't eggplant supposed to kill you or something? oohhh scary vegetables!

This blurry photo was taken out the window of one of our friends who just moved in down the street. Sometimes Napoles has a nice quiet neighborly feel for being right in the thick of things.

Ale had a birthday on the 28th and she and a friend who share close birthdays arranged to have a joint party at a local bar. It was a great night of dancing, singing and general party stuff. She even hired a couple of "band in a box" style performers who put on a pretty good set of Mexican classics to salsa the night away to.

A good time was had by all- and I'm glad to be back.
