Semana Santa

You’d be forgiven for thinking that I may have vanished off the face of the earth, especially after I realized my last post detailed occasional struggles with transitioning to life in Mexico. I’m not paying a great deal to have this here site hosted, but it’s certainly not the best use of my money toContinue reading “Semana Santa”

¡Bienvenidos a Mexico!
