10/12/2010 - More things we find "different"

“Mommy, we haven’t had much time to chit chat lately…. How are you?”
That has absolutely nothing to do with my post today but I thought it was funny considering we live together 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with virtually no break.  It’s nice to know my son still wants to chit chat. J

I thought I might share some more things that we find “different” about Mexico…

The sunrises (not that I see very many) .... beautiful :)

Yesterday we saw a man juggling fire in the middle of an intersection while we tried to find our way to Costco.  I can’t say as I’ve ever seen that before. 

Just finding Costco was different…It’s funny, while in the states, I never went looking for something by just getting in the car and driving.  I always looked up the address, Googled it, went to map quest, whatever.  Well, we don’t do that down here…where would the adventure be in that?  There’s rarely a street sign and they don’t have addresses the way we think of them so it would be a waste of time.  So after an hour or so of driving and a few stops to ask for directions (in Spanish – I might as well have used sign language), we finally found the Costco.

There’s a sign I’ve never seen before at the pool here.  “Must wear bathing suit to swim in pool”.  They’re not worried about skinny dipping here.  Just the opposite.  It’s not uncommon at all for people to just jump in with all of their clothes on.  I keep kicking myself for not taking my camera as I’ve seen no less than four people in two days get in with all of their clothes on.  Andy says that would be tacky but I’m not being judgmental, just trying to share my experiences with others!

The folks that are letting us use their mooring should be getting here soon so we’re aiming to leave on Friday.  We’ll be out of internet range for a few weeks after that.  Hopefully we can catch up with everyone when we get to Escondido.
