Summer Adventures - A Taste of Oaxaca

It’s like I found a magic lamp that granted me one wish, and I now spend my days reliving the glory of summer break!

Tuesday, Early

Samantha and I awoke quite early, this morning, and managed to wake Al, also. But he went back to sleep, again. The sun was out and the sky was mostly clear of clouds when we first went out, but the forecast calls for cool, rainy weather for this afternoon. 225 more words
