Visitors Have Arrived!

David and Marina made it to the house around 3 p.m. this afternoon.  They had a good trip using the libre between Reynosa and Monterrey.  They took the back highway from Cadereyta to Allende and then north on the 85 to our house.  Nothing to report but rain and cold!

I will update the blog with pics later tonight or tomorrow.   Glad they made it, good people and great house guests.

Kids didn't show up to classes today.  We consolidated groups and made the best of it.  A wasted day as the education department says that it is the parents call to send their kids to school.  Most schools here in the metro area have heating and air conditioning in all the classrooms.

Yesterday, the Secretaria de Educacion for the state made a visit to our school, she lives in the small town and many of the kids and teachers are related in some way or are neighbors or government officials.


  1. Seriously? Even in Mexico they stay home from school because of a little bit of cold? I know that happens in Canada with "snow days", but I figured we were just soft. I guess the whole world has gone soft...

  2. Hmmm... we just had our first snow day in 78 years. Welcome to your guests.

  3. "Back when I was a kid"... but really, it would take a full blizzard with 100 mph winds to close the schools in Edmonton, Alberta.

  4. Have a great time with Marina and David (although, that goes without saying) and please give them our very best! Salud, amigos!
