I organized Happy Hour the day we went on break. Had about 10 people there, not all the usual suspects, Marky Mark was missing, so no sex on the beach this time. Him and I know how to have sex on the beach shots... let's just say. My cousin, M, happened to be there. She walked in about an hour or so into happy hour. I walked over to say hi, then she came and visited my work peeps.
Got to talk to the lesbian math teacher who now teaches English. Glad I did. She thought I was mad at her, so we talked, and I wasn't. I told her that I am at my breaking point with the new AP, and she was supportive, and felt the same way.
Made it to Mexico City. So far we are loving it. It does not feel dangerous at all. There's tons of security everywhere you go. The people are friendly. We discovered the different sections of the city, and where we need to go back. There are some parts that are really old, grafittied, and rundown, but it was to be expected. We used AIRBNB and found an apartment to stay in for the week, so we are doing the locals thing. Dan - check this website out - it is great for the travel bug itch.
Tonight we are going to a gay leather bar. My partner is apprehensive, but I want to. Not that I'm looking. Not that it is my scene. This bar seems to be advertised everywhere. Second, I want to be able to say I went to a club in Mexico City and had one of those crazy nights out... lol... well, at least say I've been to a club here. Next will be a 50s/60s oldies music bar. How awesome is that? I'm seriously loving everywhere we go there are oldies playing. Even the gastropubs and more trendy places have them going...
The number of gay people we have seen has been crazy. We are staying in a gay area, but even when we haven't been, we've seen lots of guys.
My partner is so great - he doesn't speak a word of Spanish, yet takes me to all these places, and he doesn't complain.
I've been thinking about starting up a travel blog with reviews and recommendations, or a food review website, or both. I want to start writing again for fun, but also to get my work out. There's a few magazines starting up in my area that are seeking writers, and this would be a good thing. I've also thought about creating a happy hour guide in my area since I am the resident drunk after all.
