Blog a la Pibil

"Blog a la Pibil" was born in Mexico, and was originally based on the adventures of Josue and Lupita, who were traveling in Mexico for two months. This blog is now a continuation of the life of Lupita, who has been restored to her life as a mere mortal in Los Angeles.

Rain Teaser

Spitting rain today. As we were drying clothes. Heavily polluted agua is not a good addition to clean white undergarments. Temperatures are dropping and we’re waiting with bated breath to take photos of the flash floods in the streets with Lupita’s fearless digital camera.

New classes so far are good. We’re excited they start at 12pm instead of 8am. We won’t miss the involuntary afternoon siestas in the hot box.

There are a ton of new students at CEPE, but somehow Lupita is in a class all by herself. Not surprisingly, she likes the attention. My class has 3 people - one of whom is a truly sheltered nerd from Georgia who just graduated from high school. Today he made this joke in Spanish: “Guys who wear clothes that are in style are gay.” More quotes to follow, with luck.

Also, we’re going to wend our way to Oaxaca a week early. If anybody knows a place to stay and/or a militant language program, please forward.

How do you say “Guys who wear clothes that are in style are gay” in Spanish? And how do you say "I've always found that to be true" in Spanish?

Senor Soller: Los hombres que llevan ropas que son de moda son putos. En mi experiencia, es la verdad!

when are you guys going to Oaxaca? I was thinking about coming down there, but Guadalajara seems kind of boring. Would there be an exciting time I should come? Gracias, ti puto, Ben

Hola Benito, We are probably leaving Guadalajara on June 26 or so, then traveling for a week to get to Oaxaca via Guanajuato, San Miguel de Allende, and Mexico City. Maybe Puebla or Cuernevaca as well. So, we'll probably be in Oaxaca by early July, and stay there for at least two weeks. There's a big fiesta in Oaxaca called Guelaguetza, which is the the first two Mondays after July 16 (or something like that). It might be fun. xoxo.
