Today, Mexico turns 196 years old. Thanks to my travels I get to celebrate another country’s founding in its capital city. I’m staying in a good little hotel downtown for a little R & R. A little sun, pool, gym and Spanish TV to recharge the batteries before heading back into intensive study land tomorrow afternoon.
I’m going to a new host family next week. The first one was nice but they were never around to speak with; combine that with 6 giant dogs which wanted to rip my arm off every time I went to my room and a change was in order. The family was nice; just not a good fit.
A few days ago I sent an email to the London Business School community asking if anyone was in Mexico City over the next three weeks. And to me this is amazing; within three hours I had three responses from alumni asking if I wanted to come to our global Alumni celebration on September 28th. It is two days before I leave and should be a great finale to the trip.
Time to catch up on WVU football before heading back to the hotel. 3-0 and ranked #5 in the nation. Not too bad.
