Today I woke up in some kind of foul mood. I was grumpy, complainy, and absolutely no fun to be around. Of course I tried to hide it, but by the time we arrived in Taxco, and the locals began their hustling and the taxis almost hit me like 10 times, I couldn't hold it back any more and I let all go over a cup of coffee with Aislynn. After a little heart to heart I started to enjoy myself a lot more, and I began to have a blast.

               Taxco is a nice little town  built on a mountain that caters mostly to tourists due to its local silver mines. The moment you step out of your car you are hounded by some local trying to get you to go into his silver shop. There is so much silver in the town, that it almost makes you think that it is a precious metal that anyone can afford. At any rate, the jewelry there is beautiful, as is the cathedral in the center of the city. It's definitely worth a day of your time if you are ever in the area, if not just to see all the different things made of silver. I bought my sombrero in Taxco, because t was just what I was looking for to make "the magic" happen.  We spent about two to three hours there shopping and eating and just enjoying the center of the city. After the two hour drive back to Temixco we decided to take a swim in the pool, and it was short lived as a storm moved in, at which point we decided to hang out on the porch drinking a beer and watching it rain. Also, short lived, as I was promptly frightened inside due to some pretty extreme lightning and thunder. Yes, I am afraid of lightning and thunder. As beautiful as it is and as relaxing as it can be at night I am still terrified of it if it gets to close. I think that it's probably a control issue, because I have no control over it, it scares me.

The day was pretty lazy all in all, and later in the evening we headed in to Cuernavaca to go see a movie. We ended up seeing 21, because it was the only movie that was completely in English. I mean my Spanish isn't bad, as a matter of fact it's pretty dang good, but I didn't want to have to focus that hard throughout a movie. It ended up being pretty good, and I am now ready to go hit up Vegas. I know this entry was lame, but I'm tired so check out my pics. Tomorrow is our last full day in Mexico, (Tear), and it should be nice and relaxing again. Vacation definitely beats the heck out of third year of med school, that's a fact!
