Where is David…playing Dominoes! That was Thursday. The beginning of the week was do nothing.
I responded to a notice in the library newsletter for Mexican Train Domino’s players. I was one of three and the organizer Richard.
Richard was from Canton Ohio but when the recession hit, his company went under with a lot of others and he found himself starting a new career in NYC in the hospitality field. After years of that, he went into business for himself selling Central American Folk Art he would pick up on trips to Guatemala and Mexico in his VW Bus. He then graduated to silver, gems, jewelery and started traveling to Thailand, Tuscon Gem show, etc. He retired a few years back and bought a house in San Miguel Allende but after three years of cold he rented the house and now is settling into Oaxaca.
A lady who married a Mexican, joined us. Her husband, had been out of the US too long to qualify to apply for a Visa under Obama’s new program, so he and his wife moved from North Carolina to Mexico so she could be with him. A long time resident and homeowner in Oaxaca also joined us and the four of us started our domino game that lasted 5 hours. It was different and fun but not sure I’m going to stick with this.
Richard and I stopped for a drink and a seafood cocktail on the way home.

Friday I decided to have another special dinner at Pititona, a very nice restaurant.
|YES…THAT IS A FREEBEE SNACK SERVED ON A BRICK|
I ended up with just a glass of wine and Ceviche.

Still hungary, I walked over to Biznaga for last call and a Tlyuda to go for later.
I was heading home when I passed a Children’s event so videoed that before encountering another orchestra playing.
NO SPANISH MUSIC HERE
I sat down net to Eric from Michigan. He married a Mexican lady and they were in Mexico for the holidays with there two children. He is a Photographer and speaks Spanish along with his bilingual family. We exchanged cards, took some photos and then we both left.
I stopped at my Mescal bar where they were singing Mexican Karaoke before ended the evening
