Visiting Jesus in Mexico

sunny 27 °C

I don´t even know where to start..
Jesus came and picked me up from the airport and took me home to meet his brother and cousin, then we all went to eat tacos! Real Mexican tacos are the best!!!
I don´t know how I´ll survive without Mexican food when I get home..

He´s taken me to meet his family, see some of the Mexican "countryside", we´ve partyed with his friends and gone to a soccergame. This week he´s been working a lot, so he sent me out with his brother one day and his mum the other day. We´ve been to museums, cathedrals and basilikas. I´ve seen the virgin of Guadalupe and the biggest flag ever!
Monday I went to Taxco, which is a silver mining city build in the mountains. Very, very beautiful. And on that tour i didn´t meet another Aussie like I usually do, but a Norwegian girl! And her dad is from the same country the dad of the English guy I went to Samoa with is from, Guyana! How many funny coincidents... Well, funny for me anyway.

And yesterday I went to the hairdresser to give my poor hair some treatment that it desperately needed. I haven´t cut it since Rod cut it in September.. So, as usual, the girl cut waaaay too much, and I now have a Mexican hair style... It´s not too bad, but it´s very depressing to have "short" hair again.. I hate hairdressers..

Tomorrow I´m going to the pyramids with one of Jusus´ friends and then it´s partytime!
Right now the family dog, Jeffery, is scuirming on the floor trying to get some attention so I´ll pet her. Yes, it´s a girl. And her nickname is Cachu, which is the noise she makes when she sneezes, haha.
And their Cuban grandfather is sleeping behind me pretending to watch tv. I tell ya, if I can´t be with my family at the moment, this is the second best option! They are so friendly.
And they have a housekeeper that cleans and cooks, I don´t even get to put away my plates, she gets all upset and says "no, no" waving her hands. I could get used to that.. ;)

It´s been so good to stay with a family here, they tell me where I can go, what is safe and where the best places to buy souvenirs etc are.
The streets are crampacked with Mexicans trying to sell all sorts of stuff to make a living. It´s almost impossible to drive a car through the city center. And take my word for it, the traffic is crazy in this city as it is! Jesus claims that if you can drive in Mexico city, you can drive anywhere in the world, very true. It´s absolut madness!

It´s not exactly a safe city, but we live in a neighbourhood that is protected by fences, gates, security personnel and cameras. It´s a shame that it has to be like this, but believe me it´s necessary. So many people are kidnapped every year for ransom, it´s scary. And a lot of them don´t survive because they might recognise them..

I´m really glad I have Jesus!
Next stop is L.A. (again), my relative wants me to meet her son... And then I fly to London to get rid of any jetlag so I´ll be fit for fight when I get home, hehe!

But now I have to go, ´cause Jesus is finally home!!!
