|Me and Molls in front of Diego's Dreams of Plaza thing on a Sunday Afternoon. Kind of a big deal.|
|The chicas outside Bellas Artes - it's a big deal.|
|Awesome purple house I will live in someday.|
1) I have skyped with Linet's mom multiple times, who is Cuban and jovial and excited that I speak Spanish. I have learned that Cuban spanish accents means that you don't say s's, which Linet keeps denying, so we'll just see.
2) In general, people are shorter here. I felt weird noticing that, so I asked Jim about it, and he said that people of indigenous decent probably are shorter on average, from thousands of years living at such high altitude.

4) Linet and Molly are getting used to the way Quakers begin meals - holding hands. And they're trying to figure out what the squeezing means - "Who starts it? Are WE supposed to start it? What does it MEAN?"
5) We're reading this book called "El Monstruo" by John Ross about the history of Mexico City. I am totally scandalized by how many different groups conquered and exploited other ones, and it's making me really concerned about human morality.
The last thing I want to say is just an expression of appreciation. I'm feeling really held and loved by a lot of wonderful people across the U.S. (and across the pond). Oo! Got to Skype with Josefina the other day! Soooo great. My Spanish is still so rusty. I'ma work on it though. Anyway. I am super sleepy.
Love to all,
