The movie was in French from Quebec NOT Canadian English. My Canadian friends left…but Halina was late so we didn’t sit together or we would have left but instead saw the whole two hours. We were glad we did …for the acting and actors were good but it wasn’t something I would have paid a lot to see. It only cost $2.10. We went back to Tapas and Vino and had a great time in a VERY crowded lovely place.
We walked home together and I stopped at my Mezcal Bar for a shot with Alvaro before arriving to find my laundry bag hanging on my door…thank you Helen.

I have to interject this:
Then there is this side of the coin:
…and how the Mexican Zapistas movement has spread around the world: This is a good organization
and sad news:
A LOT GOES ON IN MEXICO THAT IS NOT IN THE PRESS OR NOTICED…SWEPT UNDER
I’m not a fan of the teacher’s strike or the fact they use this as an excuse to grab attention but I do feel as do the people of Mexico…the government isn’t doing enough to uncover the whole truth. As for the teachers….the unions were recruiting more demonstrators at the Abastos Market today to join there cause along with all the unions forming a formidable opposition to the government decisions to eliminate the generous benefits they have turning into pay without working and lifetime tenure for members AND their children. This is going to come to a head in the coming year.

Friday I booked a 6 course Marroqui dinner at Origen Oaxaca, a fairly upscale restaurant I hadn’t been to. The Chef, Hagar Aviram owns and operates VagabondCookery.com She contracts out to people and sponsors her own events with the help of El Sol y la Luna and Origen restaurants. There was a large group of gringos from Las Mariposa’s B and B along with Richard, Mike and myself that attended. It was 400 Pesos…$28 and you pay for the wine.
Harira was a lentil soup starter…forgot to photograph
