CHRISTMAS IS IN THE AIR
This is Dan’s and my third Christmas here at Hotel Perico in Mexico. The start of the holiday was with our friends at Hotel Perico in the office celebrating the season with tamales. Tamales have been consumed here as far back as 8000 B.C. Afterwards we played picturnary, which my team won. It was fabulous for the Spanish and English speakers both played together without any trouble.
Dan and I then joined into the yoga class on the Terrassa on Christmas Eve day, which helped us to stay focus on the NOW, the moment. While in class I could hear in the background the birds chirping and the workers working.
After, we rode in to Guadalajara to get in the festive mood by visiting the Galleria Mall. In the center there is a huge Christmas tree with Santa nearby, this brought back memories when I would bring our daughter to the local mall near our home in the states. Look there is Santa asking a little boy what he wants for Christmas. As we were walking we stumbled across a Casino right there in the mall.
Dan and I could not believe it, that’s the first for us. We both enjoyed some Italian coffee at a café and then off to the central square.
We thought there would be lights and all, but to our surprise there was a skating rink right in the center of the square along with two Santa's.
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.
