Hi Stephanie: Thanks for asking! I follow your stuff all the time. Mostly, I miss La Manzanilla. Life has taken on a much more formal, appointment laden, "busy" (but with what???) flavour. We have our routines, we hardly see one another, and we get things done but it's sure not the same as the "busy-ness" of life in La Manzanilla.

We have had a huge challenge this spring/summer/fall. We live on the ocean and one of those perfect storms took our deck and kind of crumbled it, so we're trying to get Municipal, Regional, Federal, and Provincial permissions to repair/replace it. In Mexico, we'd just do it. We've been tied up in red tape for 1 1/2 months already and no work has begun. (eg. 13 Aboriginal Tribes have to approve the taking down of the old wall, and say there is no burial ground under the deck, when we're not even digging a hole...just taking down what the white man put up.)

And so it we long for the sanity of our village to the south!

Hugs to all in La Manzanilla, Vicki and Robin
