I think it's now time to update this blog! I'm still in Mexico (see my Mazatlan blog), but I am no longer in the casa that had originally excited me in my earlier posts. The bed looks quaint and romantic doesn't it? Well, it wasn't: long story--the net protected me from mosquitos and bats. Yes, bats that fluttered freely above me at night, visiting from a nearby bat cave. I lasted two weeks before I moved out. Happy where I am now. I shall continue with this blog after I return to St. Paul in April, 2007!!
