X-weekend

I had a blast this weekend. I did all sort of stuff i never thought id ever do. Im very intelligent but know my abilities and disabilities very well. Im clumpsy, trip on my own feet, and im afraid of heights and of all situations that are out of my control and dangerous.

Well, this weekend i prooved im a brave girl. I went to Paradise, and its only 3 and a half hours away from home. I cant believe this was my first visit ever.

I jumped down 7 waterfalls (the highest one being about 8 meters high), i rappeled down a 105 meters waterfall, and i did lots of trecking.

Of course im a bit bruised and scratched (because of the trecking mostly), but im happy. And would definitiely do it again, and again....


(i might get a picture or two, if i do i promise ill share. i just couldnt carry a camera around.... so i have no personal pics... too bad)

Today I feel like...

  • A mango daiquiri, or a whisky sour
  • The beach
  • A bikini
  • Not much sun block
  • Lobster
  • Chris Martin or Robbie Williams or Wonder Corky (an american amongst the brits), or the three of them.
  • No worries
  • No cell phones around
  • Of course no computers either
  • Nice music
  • No track of time
  • More drinks

Shoot... know i feel misserable... my office sucks, my cell and my phone dont stop ringing, and i have to eat milky ways to sooth my soul... milky ways are awesome but cant replace the mango daiquiris or the w. sour ... or the brits

Helter Skelter

Some days are just like this.... and i feel like upside down and then inside out and then back to normal, and then brave and then fearful, and then angry and then at ease, and then happy and at the same time sad. Damn emotional roller coasters leave me alone! Confusion, Hurry, Chaos. I think thats why i took on jogging. Its cheaper than a therapist. (i copied that line from a tv comercial... my creativity right now is gone)

"When I get to the bottom I go back to the top of the slide Where I stop and turn and I go for a ride Till I get to the bottom and I see you again ..."

Dia de Muertos

We dont celebrate Halloween, we have our Dia de Muertos, with a concept of its own. Love the folklore involved, love the colors.

I will share and try to explain some of it. For us mexicans, like Octavio Paz well says: we have no qualms about getting up close and personal with death, we "...chase after it, mock it, court it, hug it, sleep with it; it is our favorite plaything and our most lasting love."

My grandma used to put altars, where she would set the pictures of our death (we didnt have many at the time). And flowers (Xempatzuchitl, yellow mexican flower used specifically in Dia de Muertos) and some food. Now she is old and she only lights a couple of candles to lighten up my grandpa's picture and my grandmothers and grandfathers relatives pictures (which are smaller and older).

I have always been chicken and afraid of every single scary thing... but this day i actually dont fear death or darkness... i respect it, cheer it, and even dare it... like a good mexican that i am.

I love the calacas (skeletons).... i do love them, as scarey as they might look...
