Hola Amigos, so this is the journey so far. I hope you like it.
Adventurez In Mexico is a blog about the Journey of a Canadian Mother and Child(whose father is Mexican) and their Adventurez and they travel, learn and explore the Mexican landscapes, language and cultural traditions.
Tina, who goes by Cristina aqui and Angel, but they like to call her Angela, became pregant in Mexico but due to circumstances such as 9//11 and other issues returned to Canada to have her child. She could not return until Angel was 6, then again at 7 and at 10, she managed to get the money to come to Mexico for 5 months. The father helped with the first trip but after Tina has raised her child alone as the child’s father is poor. Oaxaca is a very poor state. People are lucky if the make $20 a day. Now Tina, me, I have managed to get back for Angel’s 15th year, a very important year in a young Mexican woman’s life. We will have a tiny Quinceañera
But really just coming to Mexico is the gift. Stay tuned for our Adventurez In Mexico as we will be here until the end of February. Follow along and learn what it is like to live like Mexicans in Oaxaca do. Come visit. Come to Zipolite, West Jet is going to have a big sale in November…if you coming please let me know…I need some things, like eucalytus oil and probably more lavender.
We have a wish list,
2 fishing rods,
2 old bikes
a bunk bed, so Angel can have her own bed
things like that. Not much…
Okay, besos y abrazos!
Zipolita (Cristina) y Angelita (Angela) really Tina and Angel but they change our names here..
They don’t like the name Tina…it means bathtub and they think Angel is a boy’s or mans name so they change it…to Angela. Different cultures…did you learn something…we will teach you lots.
Stay tuned for more Adventurez In Mexico #AdventurezInMexico
