Ok, So I lied. I was so excited after I got my travel visa, that I just went to Mexico to hang out with my friend. I will Be here for the next couple weeks. This is me relaxing in my friends mom’s backyard. It is kind of hot but over all it is very nice this time of year. The hot season is ending and things are starting to mello out.
So While I was here in Matamoros, Mx; It has been incredible. i Absolutely love the respect that people give each other, If you are in a store and others come in everyone greets each other. Also they tend to work a lot also! My girlfriend works like 12 to 14 hour days. This is not at all what other places would have you believe about mexico. These people work very hard however they play hard too.
So when I got here we went to the town center to a park type of place and there we had this spicy corn. It was very very good but it was very spicy hahaha. If you have not been to Mexico, spicy has a different meaning here. Honestly, I have never had food this hot in my life! Ok, I have had Thai before and that is very hot also, but spice is just in the culture here and I absolutely love it. We also walked around a lot and took in the sights, and a Platanos refresca is an icecream based kind of banana sundae. It is incredible, and I do believe my favorite drink I have ever been Privy to.
There does not seem to be any desire to go to historic places outside of town to look around. I do see signs of violence, but everything seems ok now. There are pleas for peace written on some of the walls and we drove around. This is a simple town and I love it immensely, this may seem odd, but they seem to be in touch with nature more also? Birds are everywhere and they do not seem bothered by the wanderings of people. They seem almost integrated? It is difficult to describe the seeming kinship.
Oh this morning we went shopping in Brownsville and we met this great guy named Milo, check out his taxi here; www.taxiservicelosfresnos.com . He was a great guy and took us around brownsville all morning, very well priced and he was just very nice. So we went to look at shoes and dresses for the wedding. I must say this was my first time to the US and I enjoyed myself a lot, Things seemed very safe? It just seemed odd to not look over my shoulder as much, ya know?
So i enjoyed my run to the US and Mexico immensely. Everyone was so nice and graceful to each other. We have not had any problems with anything and we are just relaxing now. There is much dancing planned this evening hahah. It is funny, how happy people are when they seemingly have nothing. I take that back, they have each other. Mexico is a culture of social masters who love and live life to its fullest. I Love Mexico.
I hope ya’s enjoyed my post today! I hope to see you at my next one 🙂
