I spent some quality time with my family, eating at good restaurants and shopping. It quickly dawned on me how the global economy is hitting everyone. If the US is having a bad time, imagine what Mexico is eperiencing. Vendors were anxious to sell. I know at tourist traps, vendors always want to sell but it felt more intense. Some were begging for me to buy something.
Regardless, I love Mexico. I think I was Mexican in a past life. I have a true fondness for the country. I was mistaken for Mexican by tourists. Mexicans wanted to know if I was Chinese or Korean.
I woke up on January First, my birthday, and did my annual cartwheel. Being able to do a carwheel at 42 means I've still got some vigor in me. Of course, now I have to stretch before I do one. It was extra special because I did it while waves crashed on the beach.
So here we are in a new decade and I'm curious to know what it will bring. Happy New Year to all. I hope this year is better than the last!
