Gearing Up For The Big Scream!

Not sure what we are going to do for the 16 de Septiembre celebration which is Mexican Independence Day, independence from Spain.   Quite an interesting story.
I would like to go down to Dolores Hidalgo for the holiday but the rv is in McAllen.  If I don't have a follow up training next week we may just drive up to the border and spend a couple of days.   Last time we were there it was all work for me so I didn't get to enjoy my birthday very much although we did have a nice dinner out.  

I'm working hard on my presentation that I will be using in October with McAllen high school students.  It will be a different crowd than I am used to but I am sure once I get started it will be the good ole me doing what I do best.  

Today is the 43rd anniversary of the Mexico City Metro.   I just checked the website for the metro and the price is 3 pesos or .25 cents U.S., you can't beat that.   Our metro in Monterrey is 4.50 pesos and they are asking to increase it to 9.50 pesos in one giant leap.   We're still not sure what is going on with it and what the final price will be.  One of the problems Mexico suffers from is that no one wants to raise prices, so things suffer and don't receive maintenance and then all of a sudden they can't go on without a drastic increase and that leaves everyone up in arms.  That is what the old socialist regime has left us as a legacy.
