This past Monday we welcomed the Prusia family from Puebla to our home for a week of respite from their first months here in Mexico, the stresses of language study and culture shock, and being away from family for their first Christmas away from home in the USA.
On Tuesday the boys and I rode with them to Guanajuato which is a really neat city here in central Mexico. They had never been before so it was fun to guide them on a walk through some of the highlights of this colonial city. Beth and her mom stayed behind because Beth isn’t supposed to be walking much and that’s pretty much a requirement in Guanajuato. (We ended up not going to Puebla for the Coro Unido Christmas performance for the same reason…bummer!)
Yesterday, we just relaxed here at the house and in honor of Beth’s birthday, we left the kids at home and went out for a nice lunch and a couple hours of adult conversation without kids. That was a nice treat. The kids didn’t complain either! Hmmmm.
Today, we’re planning on heading up to see the camp and to visit with missionary friends who live up there. At over 8,500 feet altitude, we probably should put on some jackets. Nothing unusual about that, we were them all the time in our cold house with indoor temps in the upper 50s and lower 60s during these cold months. It has been in the 20s at night. A bit nippy when there’s no central heat and the house is made of concrete and tile. Brrrrr!
Here are some photos from our Tuesday walk around Guanajuato. Enjoy!
