Too much going on to really put together a good coherent post, so for now more just a stream-of-conciousness mish-mash…

Goya!  Goya!

Never flying Continental again.  I actually swore them off once already but somehow ended up taking them home yesterday.  Random extra charges, big delay, crappy service, and having to fly through IAH… not a fun travel day.

Still dunno how we survived the my Final Cantina Friday.  At least the pictures turned out awesome; let me know if you need any of these taken down for fear of never getting a job if these are found…

The Cantina Ladies.  And me.

I miss everyone already.

One thing I can’t complain about:  The amazing view of Lake Michigan I have out of my window right now.

Finally, the winner of the (possibly hijacked by unnamed gringo ninja) photo contest.  Apparently humor trumps artsy-ness:

"What do you mean HE'S NOT MINE, Mary?!"

"What do you mean HE'S NOT MINE, Mary?!"

More to come when I have time to sit down and put more coherent thoughts together.

My last day in Mexico happens to coincide with the final game of the soccer season, and my team is heading into the game with a 1-0 goal advantage.  While I can’t be at the stadium in Pachuca to cheer them on, I can at least give them an e-Goya:

Goya!  Goya!  Chachuncachun rah rah!  Cachuncachun rah rah!  Goya! Universidad!

Goya! Goya! Chachuncachun rah rah! Cachuncachun rah rah! Goya! Universidad!
