Photo Gallery: Morelia

Well, friends, I have a whole host of things I'd like to blog on (not least among them a new Bruce Springsteen album!) but I've been delayed by a nasty fever/food poisoning combo double-whammy thing that knocked me out for a few days. (Ok, speaking of Bruce, I can't resist: For a great pre-halftime show read, click here, scroll about halfway down the page to where it says "Marisa Tomei Award" and then read the Sports Guy's prediction about what Bruce will do. Love it, love it, love it.)

But I thank everyone for their well-wishes on the internship placement! We honestly spent all of Monday afternoon and evening researching Seattle, because neither of us have ever been there and know almost nothing about it (me: "I know the Sonics used to play there"; Chris: "Do you know if it's by the water?")... I'm sure you'll see more on this developing subject in this space in the months to come.

And we've got a busy couple of days ahead: Tomorrow we leave for San Juan de Los Lagos, about 2 hours north of here, for the festival of Candelária, which is to say we're going to see one of the biggest religious festivals in the town that Chris is researching. We'll be there for at least a few days, experiencing the festival itself and also exploring the area for possible places to live, as we'll be moving from Guadalajara to the area around San Juan de Los Lagos in March.

In the meantime, I wanted to post some photos from our trip last weekend to Morelia, over in the neighboring state of Michoacan. Like last time, I put captions underneath every single photo, to tell the story of our viaje. We had an especially good time on this one - hopefully the photos reflect at least a bit of that. And so, here they are:

amazing pictures as usual. I read that sports guy article when it first came out and thought of you as I read his bit about Springsteen. Also, last night Hannah and I traveled to Blacksburg, Virginia to see Clemson play Virginia Tech, and your boy Bobby Knight was calling the game for ESPN. After the game I got a picture of Bobby Knight, Brent Musburger, and Frank Beamer standing around shooting the bull. Have safe travels to San Juan de los Lagos!
