We got up bright and early to head out to Yautepec , where we were going to meet Gonzalo, Jessica (his wife), and some of her family out at their weekend home. Their place was beautiful and relaxing, and I though the colors of the house were beautiful. It was like the University of Texas meets the French. We hung out at their weekend home for a few hours, where we sat around and chatted and I smoked my final cigar of the week ( a Vegas Robaina Classico), and it was good. We had a great brunch, chatted a little more and took off for Mexico City. On our way back we stopped in Tazaplan so that I could buy a Horongo (poncho) to go with my sombrero, and while we were there we decided to indulge ourselves in the local beverage (a Michelada), which was a combination of fresh lemon juice, spicy ground chili's, and corona. It was yummy, and by yummy I mean yummy! I'll have to go back to Tazaplan sometime, as they seem to have a pretty good little hippie market, and there is a pyramid there , and there is a pyramid there that is at the top of the mountain right outside of town. I think it would be a lot of fun to make the hike sometime.

                Our trip back to Mexico City was uneventful and when we arrived we started getting ready to head back to San Antonio the next day. At about five in the afternoon Italo had to head out to the bus station to catch his bus to Laredo. That is one long bus ride! Aislynn and I headed out to the Coyocan market for a little while after he left, and then we ended the night with some domino's pizza with her grandparents. Manina got pretty talkative that night and I got to hear a bunch of stories about how much she loves Venice, and how there used to be a train from Mexico City to Laredo, and that Italo and Gonzalo used to love taking the train when they were children. It was really nice getting to hear some of her stories. Alas, the night is over and we are headed to bed, packed and ready to head out in the morning. 

                I've already started planning my next trip to Mexico. I'd love to take the bus down through Guadalajara, and visit some of the tequila distilleries in the area and see the fields of agave that grow in the region. After that I'd love to head down to Acapulco and spend a couple of nights on the beach. After that I'd love to head back up toward Mexico City, spending a day in Tazaplan, and then while in Mexico City, I'd like to visit some of the museums, and head out to the floating gardens outside of town. It all sounds good in my head, but the problem is finding the time. Fourth year should allot me a little more vacation time, but I'm going to have to work my travels around my interview schedule. Oh well, I'm  not going to look that far ahead now, because I have another trip to look forward to here over the next couple weeks. Stay tuned amigo's!
