Hey Leo.

Warm (but not too hot) during the day and cool at night, blanket weather.

We got some light rain the last few days I was there.

Guanajuato has been cold and rainy for the last 2 days.

Breaking the code

“What does seem to be required of the individual is that he learn enough pieces of expression that he be able to fill in and manage, more or less, any part that he is likely to be given.” --Erving Goffman

Learning conversational Espanol is a stated goal of this trip and in that pursuit I’m taking language classes as I make my way south. My first exposure to classroom instruction was at the Fenix Language Institute in Zacatecas and the experience is a bit overwhelming at the onset. Arturo Dorado Sr. and his family, who are all active in teaching and administration at the school, make me feel welcome and I come away from the experience with a nice foundation from which to grow as I continue to acquire my second language. I especially thank Karla, my instructor, for being so patient as I mangle so many expressions.

I will try to attend school again in Xela (Guatemala) and let what I've learned at Fenix marinate as I travel through the remainder of MX.

MG,

So glad to see you have started your ride! And like to Crashy, super congrats to you for taking the time to stop and learn the language.

I like your ride report writing style even if you are a FF from JoMomma

Good luck and be safe. I'll be reading

Mike

Poor Karla, she has the patience of a saint to teach Spanish to dumbfucks like us.

Great writing, pictures, and trip! I'm taking off for my US and Latin America trip in August and have been taking tons of notes from your report... I'm sure I'll be staying in some of the same places and seeing the same things!

Adios!
