Friday, November 24, 2006 So many pictures! I started traveling the world in 1962 when I went to the university and traveled around in Mexico for ten weeks. Being a teacher, I had breaks during spring and summer holidays. Unfortunately, so many of my pictures are still on slides or are in books and have not been scanned. So I'm going to put up some that have and some digital and other random pictures that strike my fancy.

Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo, originally uploaded by ujima.

A day to celebrate Mexican heritage and pride that has degenerated for many into another day to go out, get drunk and act stupid. That's why we weren't on the roads on Saturday when many celebrated and won't be out tonight.

I show you this drawing on my bedroom wall of myself, Sis & her friend Kate. We were @ an outdoor café in the Zona Rosa in Mexico City (1973) and an artist drew this cartoon of us. Ah, Mexico!
