We were supposed to go to Dolores Hidalgo today. It's where the Mexican Revolution began. But there was no way we could make it to the bus station, much less survive the ride. We ventured out to pick up a pizza, but most of the day was spent suffering and whining to one another about our miseries. It's almost 6 p.m. and I'm starting to feel like I may live to see the sun rise another day.
Today would have been a perfect lay around and watch a movie day
So one of the benefits of travel is meeting other travelers. They tend to be interesting, intelligent people, who always have a good story. We haven't found many of those. But we did find a girl from Nashville, TN who has been to San Miguel four times but hasn't been anywhere else in Mexico. She also didn't know what an aqueduct was. I told her it was what people used to transport water before the advent of pipes. She didn't seem to know there was a time before indoor plumbing. What happened to no child left behind? I drew a surprisingly realistic picture on a bar napkin, but this didn't help. I'm sure she'll grow up and make very pretty babies. I'm going to buy the children "Baby's First Aqueduct" sets.
Well, I think I'm going to go curl up in the fetal position and rock back and forth until my innards work their way back into place. Good night. God speed.
