Please try to speak as much Spanish as you can. It's not a joke to us even if you are unsure or make mistakes. It's our language, we think it's beautiful, and we appreciate folks learning it to communicate with us. Enjoy and expand your vocabulary. Try to learn a song or watch a TV show, even if it's only a soccer game, news or a children's show. That's how you learn it.

As Talley Ho pointed out, Monday is the Paro Nacional de Mujeres. Please be respectful and understand what brought this about. Mexican women are fed up with being abused, mistreated and seeing their sisters murdered just for being women. They're fed up with men not taking the problem seriously to stop the abusive and violent behavior by their brothers. The gota que derramó el vaso was the poor if not disdainful reaction recently of the government when the subject was brought up at one of the Presidente's morning press conferences at the Palacio Nacional (he does them daily). No one expects all women to participate, but remember this is no joking matter. Many women will be participating in spirit only because of practical matters, but I'll venture to guess most of the country supports this. I know I sure as hell do. Although Lupita assures me she won't abandon me for the day, I've got my beer and chips in case drastic measures are necessary and I have to remember how to feed myself.

This is my kind of eye candy. El Cerro Viejo. As long as I can see this distinct old hill I know I'm right where I belong.
