a typical day

our wagon fits right in, barely
our street, revueltas

the nuns, "las monjas"
we can't get enough of this view from our porch - we see the city below, the mountains beyond, and all the amazing colors from the flowers, trees, birds, etc.  Our house is at about 7,000 ft elevation.  The city is at about 6,500 ft.

will and alya doing a little remodeling in the backyard

on our way to school one morning, behind the official car of mexico

the drive is a bit different than Chicago
once there, the kids play outside until the bell rings at 8:30.  

boys play some soccer before Maestro Ricky rings the bell (an actual bell)

Will & friends off to class 
Alya goes to class

Alya waits to greet Maestra Rocio
Alya and her classmates & maestra
Will getting some tips from veteran, Bo.  

enjoying "elote" after school

on our way down to the jardin

the light show on the paroquia, designed by a  visiting French artist.  This exhibit is accompanied with amazing music and depicts the Mexican revolution.  It is happening every night through the beginning of October to celebrate Mexico's bicentenario.
