Springtime in Guadalajara

16 Mar

Things are getting beautiful here.  Trees of all different colors are sprouting all over the place…at least it feels that way, since I never paid them much attention before they were bright purple or yellow.  Baking hot at mid-day, but warm breezes all night.  Deep purple sunsets.  Ants diligently at work dismantling leaves from the highest branches of the tree in front of our apartment and trucking them the millions of ant-miles down the trunk and into the hole in the tile under our front steps.

Had a great visit with Sam; we`ve known each other since we were talking about Warcraft in the back of Eric Weis`s 7th-grade algebra class.  There`s something really cool about being with someone you know really well in an environment that`s completely foreign to your relationship…like two kids from central Vermont hanging out in Guadalajara, Mexico.  It`s calming, in a way…kind of reassures you that, even though you may only know a few people here and don`t understand half of what everyone says, you`re a real person, with a history and a home town.

Anyways, Ana`s coming to visit this week.  Stoked for that!  And in the meantime, here are some photos I took over the last few weeks when spring started happening.

    I have a son and daughter in law moving to Guadalajara in July, to start medical school there. Their blog is http://www.AaronandSarah.wordpress.com. They will be coming down soon to find an apartment. Any help or advice you may be willing to offer will be appreciated.

      Hey Steve,
      Thanks for reading! I`m sure your son and daughter in law are going to have a great time here. My e-mail is dycate at gmail dot com; they can definitely shoot me a message if they`ve got any questions about moving down…I can let them know what different neighborhoods are like, whether they`re getting a fair price for rent, some good restaurants to check out while they`re here, etc. My Mexican cell is (33) 1139.9636, so they can give me a ring when they`re here if they want, too! Cheers,
