Mexico – 8.3.1999

Yesterday was a very long day.  Our bus from Acapulco to Mexico City didn’t have very good air conditioning and there was this toy that played Beethoven’s Fur Elise for 5 hours straight.  I don’t know why nobody else could hear it or if they could ignore it for that long.  It drove Jen and I crazy.  We also only got one movie, Godzilla, but at least it was in English.  I also felt like I was going to die from being sick.

Last night was a bad one.  I was allergic to something in the room and kept sneezing and had a runny nose.  Right now we are in the bus station waiting to go back to Texcoco.  I really didn’t enjoy Acapulco as much as I thought I would.  Well, I still feel pretty congested after last night and don’t feel like writing anymore in this bus terminal.  I’ll write more later.

Ok, now I have to go back to last Friday.  We took our exams that morning and I think I did pretty well.  I knew a lot about NAFTA and am sure I got an A but wasn’t too clear on the Puebla project.  After our exam we headed to the bus terminal for our trip to Acapulco.  I got major flashbacks in the terminal of traveling around Europe with Alejandro.  It took about an hour to get to Mexico City from Texcoco then we had to travel to the South bus station which took another 25 minutes by taxi.  Then we waited for 45 minutes until the bus left for Acapulco.  We watched two movies while on the bus.

I didn’t get a chance to write yesterday because we went to Mexico City then had to study for our exam.  So here I am on the bus to Acapulco and finally have time to write.  The handwriting is sloppy because of the bus! 

Anywho, yesterday we went to Mexico City after a short lecture on the political parties of Mexico.  Our first stop was at the Modelo Brewing Company.

Today was another day of classes.  These days are easier than the beginning because we have time to work  on our group projects instead of sti through class all day.  I did enjoy our last class about medicine in Mexico though because the professor was great.  He is a doctor MD and has various PhDs.

Not much happened today though.  The only person that has E-mailed me consistently is Ron and that is because he is unemployed at the moment.  I’ve only heard from my sister once and twice from my Dad.  My Mom said she sent one but she must have gotten the address confused.  I guess they are having a busy summer as well.  Tory is pretty good about E-mailing though.  She is busy too.
