Hey!

So i'm alive! and im here. i just ate breakfast at the hostel and now im not sure what im going to do the rest of the day. most of the museums and things are closed on mondays, but ill probably just start walking and see where i end up.

 

yesterday i had absolutely no concept of time. i didnt even see a clock until like 9pm. but i took a nap and then walked around the zocalo-the city center, big open square where people hang out and sell things and perform. there were these crazy acrobats/breakdancers doing a show when i went through.

 

and this huge cathedral-enormous, i have never seen one so big in my life. the mass started while i was inside so i stayed. it was interesting..

 

and i ate these amazing tostadas for dinner, huge blue corn tortillas with beans and chiles and cilantro and hot sauce and crumbly oaxaca cheese. it was so hot i could still feel the sauce in my chest/stomach like three hours later.

 

Liz you will be happy to know the hostel is right across the street form Super Soya natural health store!! so if i need some arnica i will know where to go.although, from my window they appear to be selling ice cream as well. theyre closed today though, i guess monday is the mexican day to close everything.

 

The hostel is really nice and clean. my room has like 12 beds ad big lockers, and something between a balcony and a window that i can seen the buildings of the zocalo from. people are friendly, i ate breakfats with two women from sweden and australia who are just traveling around north and south america for the summer,

 

okay! my time is about to run out but i will write more another time.!

i love you!

Catherine
