U.S. Consulate - Comexus Fulbright
Last night I was invited to the U.S. Consulate's house in Monterrey. It was a gathering to recognize those who have been Fulbright in the exchange program Comexus with the U.S. It was a real "to - do" in the sense that it was held in the consulate's house in El Rosario in La Del Valle, one of the most exclusive areas of Monterrey. Police were at the front gates to check ID with the lista de invitados.

We met quite a few of the consulate employees and I am happy to say they were very open, young minded folks who made themselves "disponibles" to the people there and made it clear they were there to serve. A real change in comparision to years past.

We had wine (actually quite a bit of wine) and some pretty good horse duvers. The conversation was great and there were people from all over the U.S. and Northern Mexico.

Speaking with Jane, a Consulate employee (actually cracking jokes)

It was a good time had by all and not much accomplished other than that. We did meet some great people from the University in Saltillo and made some new friends from the U.S. government.
