New Pictures.

Today we finished fixing the toilet and we got new furniture (a sofa...i guess I should call it a love seat...and chair ended up costing us $250 USD), which is nice and cheap considering that my mom sent our sheets and blankets (which cost $200 in the first place) and shipping ending up costing her $200 more dollars UPS...AND when it got here today, Toño and I had to pay 1000 pesos more just so that the UPS men would release it to us).

Anyway, not too much writing today, just pictures....

this is what the shower floor looked like before I cleaned the paint (the left column is already stripped of paint)...

and this is after...and getting mopped with the jerga let me tell you that the brick you see there is because there are "cat-sized" rats living in the sewer beneath us, so until we can get a new drain cover or something, we have to keep a brick there and covering the drain in the laundry room...I haven't seen any yet but Toño's mom and brother swear up and down that there was a dead one the size of their cats in the laundry room)

and finally, my favorite thing so far...it should say "prohibido subir con diablos" TR: prohibited to come up with dollies (like the ones you use to move heavy things) but someone scratched off the s on diablos and so now it says prohibited to come up with the devil...

If something is sent to you by POSTAL service do you still have to pay to get the package? Grampa

Have you preceived a sense of a widening or a narrowing gap between the rich and poor? Are there comments about outgoing Vicente Fox's use of the military in quelling the peaceful demonstrations in Oaxaca? Love and miss you....
