La Trinidad, Tlaxcala

Don’t I still have a blog somewhere? Oh yeah, here it is! I guess I should post something again. I keep forgetting.

Well, we’re closing in on the last few days of summer break. The seminary has started up. I’ve got some major dental work to be done in the coming two weeks, and so I’m delaying the start of English classes there until I can get through the mouth torture that is about to make life a little tricky for awhile.

This coming week, PCS will begin a new school year. To kick that off, the teachers, staff, and board members (those who were able to) attended an one-day retreat with an overnight at a government-owned resort about an hour from here. It was fun, relaxing, fast, and mostly a nice chance to get out of the big city (to a smaller city!) and get some fresh air and enjoy a lot of conversation. I’m hoping to keep up with the 9th-10th grade Bible class I’ll be teaching, as missing any days there will be more challenging. We’ll see how I feel once the dentists get cracking (a root canal on one molar and an extraction with implant on another).

I broke out the camera and took a few shots of and from the grounds of the resort. I am still a bit of a noob when it comes picture-taking with a manual camera. I had no idea that I had left some manual settings intact from my last Zumba shoot at the mall, and the pics I took this morning were whacked out because the exposure  and ISO settings were way off for normal pics. Fortunately, RAW pics can be fixed using editing software, so I managed to edit out the bad settings and for the most part fixed the pics. I’ve also gone into my camera settings to reset those back to something normal.

The resort was originally a textile factory that opened in the 1880s. It’s an interesting place with great views of the local volcanoes.

I also have a heart for MK Education (helping out where my wife teaches full-time at a local Christian school with MK students). I occasionally write or have a pic to share with you at my blog, Knowing Your ABCDs, which you can read with a click on the button above. You can read my blog with a click on the button above.
