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.

Happy Bday Tres / Bday number 30

We are now celebrating the third bday this week (lupita, the nation, etc), turning 30 in oaxaca is a good thing to do i have decided. this afternoon we went to a huge market outside of oaxaca with the school and i had bizarre flavored icecream (cactus fruit and "burnt milk" flavor, I cannot recommend the burnt milk but the cactus fruit, called "tuna", rocks) and then Lupita gave me a Chivas soccer ball which means that I am the happiest boy on earth. also ate some cake during our descanso between classes. celebrated with candles and everybody there, not hard to do when the school is approx 20 people. one of the teachers tried to smash my face into the cake as I was taking a bite, very exciting and a very common birthday antic in latin america. fortunately the teacher, appropriately nicknamed "ita" (her full name is huge and long and indigenously difficult to pronounce) is only about 5 ft tall and so mostly it was a birthday smack on the back of head. Ah almost forgot also ate more grasshoppers at the mercado, these were not mushed and instead doused with lemon and lightly pan fried. much more exciting. very sad not to show pictures, per usual. tonight we are going out somewhere fun, Lupita has promised another suprise. I am hoping for something spicy. My chile addiction has grown dramatically in Mexico.

Also - happy Birthday to my cuate NICOLAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! who right now is cooking lamb for himself, baby eric and rest of family. wish I was there or you were here. Lots of Love. the Bruther in Oaxaca.

Oh please kiss Oaxaca for us and be sure to sing a verse of "Cielito Lindo". The mole at Las Bugambilias is said to be the best in town. We liked it anyway.

CumpleaƱos felices.

Ben, We can't wait for you to visit us in San Cristobal. We haven't asked the apartment people whether you can stay but we fully intend to smuggle you in. Bring a sleeping bag. We will give you more details once we see the apartment on Sunday. Also, the apartment apparently has DSL so if you want to bring a laptop you can use it there.

Dunia!!! How is the baby??? Are you and little Simon coming to Chiapas or what?

Dude, I so wish I could come down to Chiapas. Love the deep Mexico.

Baby and Hubby are groovy. We just came off a three week East Coast tour of our families. I wish there were gigs in there, but alas, there were only parents, grandparents and endless cousinfolk. Pics @ http://simon.sinnreich.com.

Have more fun! Love the blog.
