I've downloaded (is that a word?) Skype and called my son's landline. The reception was awful, plus it costs $0.27/minute. He downloaded Skype and we could hear each other somewhat better.
I'm on Facebook. It's a good way to see what my grand daughters are up to. My friend Susan found me on Facebook. Susan and I haven't spoken to one another for about thirty-five years.
The Triqui children I teach are in for a surprise tomorrow. I've created powerpoint presentations to go with the songs they like to sing. They think they are singing songs, but I'm hoping they will learn to count.
We've got 5 little monkeys jumping on the bed, five little ducks who went swimming one day and five green and speckled frogs.
I'm going to a wedding on Saturday, tomorrow I must buy a gift. I won't know anyone at the wedding except the groom, his mother and sister. I'll have to speak Spanish, which I speak like a two year old.
I have a friend here in Oaxaca, apart from the family whose property I live on, she's a writer from Mexico City. We will be going to a free jazz concert one Saturday soon, and we will likely do coffee sometime too. She speaks English, but perhaps we should speak Spanish, which will limit our conversation.
I'm going to blog about October 2, a day the students march in the street.
