It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like…

…San Juan del Rio (at Christmas time).

Walked downtown this afternoon to pick up about $90 worth of educational copies for co-op classes. (I’m glad I took enough cash with me. I didn’t think it would cost more than $30 or so!)

I was glad I wore short sleeves for this walk. It was around 80 degrees and I worked up a little sweat under my ball cap. You might remember what that kind of weather is like, right? I know some of you are probably experiencing something a few degrees cooler than this!

In fact, I just saw this line in an article about the current blizzard system barreling across the USA:
A man who was found behind the post office in Yale, Iowa died en route to hospital. He had been there for at least a couple hours, Green said.

So…be careful friends if you’re in this bad weather. (I don’t think I know anyone in Yale, IA and I hope you don’t either.)

On my way I walked through the main plaza in San Juan and took a few pics so you could see what it looks like. Since the “Ghost of Christmas Present” hasn’t mysteriously made any new changes to the nativity scene, I thought I’d give you something else to view today.


the top of the Christmas tree is guarded by what some have called the “Mexican Air Force” but I would never say such a thing…more than once

the hats and scarves vendors didn’t appear to have any customers while I was there…I wonder why not? (notice that most of the people in the photos are wearing short-sleeves…that’s actually rather surprising given most people bundle up for the cool morning and then just keep their jackets and sweatshirts on all day…even if it gets up over 80 degrees)
