My computer is finally back. I hope it lasts until I go up to Portland at the end of July. The repair man practically rebuilt the thing. He had to replace the keyboard and now I have a Spanish one. I am having a hard time getting used to the changes on it. But it could be helpful when I write articles for Accesslakechapala.com. It has been so long that I haven´t written that I decided to not do it anymore. I have so much free time everyday. But then I thought of all the friends I have made through the blog and I decided to continue doing it. Maybe not as much as before.
I watched my friend Virginia start her blog and I could see her becoming as obsessed as I have been through the years about taking photos for it. I have taken almost 70,000 photos for this blog. I have an obsessive personality anyway so I need to be more careful about letting the blog take over my life.
I went to Puerto Vallarta for a week with my friend Liz.We arrived on May first, the day of all the cartel violence. The police told us not to leave the timeshare. I didn't mind that. We were on the beach with a beautiful pool. And by the next day things had calmed down. This drug violence is kind of like storms that come through and then disappear for awhile. Just something we have to learn to live with or else leave the country to somewhere safer. Where would that be?
I will go through some of the many photos I have taken while my computer was down and put some on here. Maybe not today. I do not want to get back into feeling that the blog has taken over my life. Not that I have a lot to do here. It was in the low 90s yesterday and too hot to go anywhere in the afternoon.
