So we're home...

It's a whole new kind of culture shock when you return to reality after nearly 6 months in Southern Mexico. Zipolite, Oaxaca to be exact.

Angel and I were hesitant and amazed when we could put our toothbrushes under the tap and brush our teeth. (Think about that for a second and give thanks if you can. It's something that most people take for granted....)

The second crazy thing that made us grateful is you can actually put the paper down the toilet. Jajajajajaj!! Translation: Hahahahahah!! but it's not funny. It's something that you don't think about unless it's your reality in Zipolite or most of Mexico. It was in Mexico city(also known as D.F. District Federal) that we could actually flush it and it was a strange feeling after you have trained yourself not to for the last six months.

We arrived home super late the other night but all went smooth. We met some really great people on the planes and waiting for the planes. Angel enjoyed taking her shoes off through the customs, she had waited anxiously all day for it ;) Silly kid.

It's cold, ...not really but being climatized to the heat and humidity for the last 6 months we've got to adjust.

At least going to Oaxaca first and then D.F. helped a bit as they are chillier and dry....that's what's getting us too...it's super dry. Need to remember use lots of oils or lotions if your in a similar situation.


It's a sad day today, I lost a friend today. Reality sets in.

It was a grey and dreary day today, but we had Oaxacan hot chocolate and movies to watch. Good day to chill.

As soon as the weather warms I've got lots of plans to promote my videos. I have got some cool new Oaxaca shirts and my friend gave me a great jacket...I'll show you later.

I've got lots of videos to put up and other work to do.

 Today I'm going to give thanks for life and for being safely home and for my beautiful child, for family and friends. I give thanks for drinking water from taps and the other daily things that we take for granted. Gracias Dios, and all the angels and positive powers that be for helping us through our next journey. : D

  1. Awesome post about your return home and being grateful for everything. We become complacent with our good fortune sometimes. A reality check is always good for the spirit of awareness and blissful experience. May the Angels always be with your two. GOD is always there no matter what. Paz y amor, Daniel
