... you need to spend money, so we did. We got a couple of beers and I went out and tried the water. As usual it was sweltering hot in Veracruz, and as I got in the water I expected to cool off, but the water temp is about the same as the outside temp, it's like a nice warm bath. I swam around on and off between drinking beers while Bobbie sat in the sun and tanned. It was a really good afternoon, I was happy I got in the water before leaving because it was a good ...

... place was jam packed...what followed was a performance from a fusion latin jazz band with a powerhouse female voice lead. We made friends with the waiter who made us a delicious mezcal martinis and forced us to stay a few hours longer than we anticipated. It was a great time!

Today, we left the Roma district to come to the southern part of the city, Coyoacan. This area just recently became incorporated into the greater DF region, entonces it is very ...

... was only a few minutes drive away. His mother, Angeles, was already waiting for us with lunch ready. Another good sign! Muy amable los dos! I immediately felt comfortable and at home. They have a big almost colonial style like house. The external walls are all ceramic tiles. The floor were also all tiles with neat design. The furnishing was also like antique – it's like stepping back in the 1950s ...

MORE TRAINING

A travel blog entry by karynina

Today, we as teachers start off with more training and rules about things with school. This is important, but its in Spanish. So I have my huge dictionary with me and try to translate the powerpoints. Stephanie still helps me a lot, but less and less, she is very encouraging about this stuff because only 4 years before she was where I was at.

I have more free time to just plan or gather stuff. So Stephanie and I gather cables for ...

    Hotel Baluarte is just a few blocks away from the sea and the zocalo, both within few minutes walking distance. Gran Cafe de la Parroquia, an institution in Veracruz, is also nearby. The pool is quite small, but it's good enough to take a dip in to cool off from the scorching heat of Veracruz. Very neat and tidy hotel. The receptionists don't speak English and they really couldn't help much in suggestingw hat places to see -- but I realised, it's the same elsewhere even in 4/5-star hotels in the city.
