Chateau Dumpeau

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!!

  2. Still looks a nice place to spend winter.

    Glad to say we are having lovely Spring weather, but the weather woman said it was going to change this weekend!

  11. Hi Kate! Glad I checked back here. I used to always want a cool bed like this (but not the creatures that you encountered!). I am enjoying your Mazalan DP also. Look forward to seeing more of St. Paul soon!

  12. Hello Kate!

    Hope to see you soon around the Blog-o-sphere!

    I like that detail as a curtain for your bed.

    By the way, I wish you a happy Easter time.

    Cheers, Swerch.

  15. Clever title and update. I'm not sure how you lasted 2 weeks there.
    Looking forward to your return to St. Paul.

  16. Bats are or I should say, probably were, after the mosquitoes who had fed on you. I don't know but that seems like a little too much familiarity in a room.

    Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting on the Life and Death issues.
