Keep praying for the teachers strike

11This was supposed to be posted last night, but it didn't post for some reason.

To tell the truth, I have not had a very good day. In the morning we worked more with packing/selling our stuff here. At two I watched the World Cup game and watched Germany (the team I was for) lose. Interestingly enough, once the first round of the World Cup finished, evey single one of the teams I have rooted for have lost, bar none! Anyway, then I read online that North Korea tested a missile. It failed, so I guess it's not a huge deal. (By the way, why is it such a big deal that North Korea has the capability to make a maximum of around 15 nuclear warheads when the US already has over 12,000?)

For dinner we went out to eat at a taco place called Mixtacos with the family I stayed with before my parents came down. That was fun and I had a great meal of tacos al pastor (the kind where layers of meat are stacked on a vertical spit that is next to some sort of flame; the meat is then cut off from the sides so it's kind of shredded). Unfortunately, this family also mentioned the rumor that the teachers are planning another big march tomorrow and will probably block roads.

That's certainly not encouraging since my family was planning on going out to Teotitlan tomorrow to celebrate the town's festival day with my friends there. Hopefully we make it there... After all that, I think it's time for a nice long visit to (Good News Network International).

Second pic: A waterfall from up in the mountains.
Third pic: Do I really need a caption for this one? Oh, how I miss Huatulco... :) :)
