Mis Estimados
Compadres, Amigos, Amigas, Compañeros y Compañeras:

Now. Here. This . Ahora. Aquí. Esta.I am starting to watch Spanish TV.
It is actually Hollywood shows that have been dubbed into Spanish,
or are in English with Spanish Subtitles...
I turn the sound off and watch the show and read the Spanish subtitles...
I can read and understand about 1/3 of what is going on..
I think that it is helpful in getting to be more familiar with the Spanish language...
I have to recognize the meaning of the Spanish words very quickly,
because the Spanish subtitles do not stay on the screen for very long...
And I occasionally learn the meaning of new Spanish words..
I have a Spanish/English dictionary nearby when I watch Spanish TV.
I cannot understand what they are saying in Spanish - I have not reach that stage
in learning to speak Spanish yet....
What shows do I like to watch - Seinfeld (I have seen all of the episodes at least 4 or 5 times),
I know what they are saying even with the sound off and not reading the Spanish subtitles,
Miami Vice - that is and was a really great show - I like Don Johnson, the black detective and their Hispanic Detective Chief (Jefe), Two and Half Men, Mexican CNN, Mexican News, Scrubs, etc. ...
Occasionally I buy and read a Mexican Newspaper, I like to keep up with the Mexican News, it makes me feel more like I am part of the community here in Mexico.. Many English speaking people here in San Miguel do not know what is going on in Mexico or care about what is going on in Mexico and are quite content to live in the English speaking bubble that is here in San Miguel, Mexico..  even some English speaking people that have been here in San Miguel foe 20 or 30 years - and I have met quite a few of those people that have been here in San Miguel for 20 or 30 years....   But maybe that is the same situation in Ottawa, Canada and everywhere - Where some of the English speaking people in Ottawa, Canada do not really care what is going on in Ottawa, or Ontario, or Canada and live in their own little bubble.... I guess I have always been interested in what is going on in the world around me....... ....

I naturally have a curious and enquiring mind... Watching the Mexican weather report on the news, I have noticed that Mexico city is always a few degrees cooler than San Miguel - even though Mexico city is about 500 kilometers further South than San Miguel and about 1,000 ft. lower in elevation... Maybe it is the Mexico City air pollution that keeps it a little bit cooler - Mexico city is a very badly air polluted city and air pollution can and does shield the underlying earth from the sun's heat to a certain extent...... there is also volcanic ash in the air from the Mexico City's neighboring volcano's..... 
And Monterey, which is about a 1,000 kilometers North of San Miguel is usually a few degrees hotter than San Miguel - why is this???????????????...

Some Amigo's of Mexico Dave's in San Miguel....
You meet the strangest people in San Miguel....Since Mexico Dave has changed his appearance - he may be attracting the wrong kind of friends. 


Viva La Mexico
