When I moved to this house I partly did it so I could live the way the Mexicans live and see what that was like. I often noticed that their homes are dark, cave like. I would walk by a house with the door open and glance inside and see nothing but darkness. I always wondered why they liked to live like that. I wanted lots of natural light. But now I understand. Dark places are cool in the hot weather.
I have a friend who recently moved to a new home here. She is the first person to live in it and it was not well designed. It is beautiful but there is no circulation. It is filled with natural light. I felt envious when I saw it. Her rent is over six hundred dollars a month. Now I am relieved that I live in my 130 dollar a month typical Mexican home. It is dark and COOL.... I can sleep at night. And the other advantage of a dark place is the privacy. Kind of like being in a womb. I am guessing, since I haven't been in a womb for a very long time, over seventy years. I don't remember that far back. Often I can't even remember yesterday. All I remember is that I got inspired to double my swimming. I did 80 laps instead of 45 laps in one day. I did that Monday and Tuesday. Stayed away from the pool on Wednesday and today my knee hurts again.
Maybe no swimming again today and it might heal. Nothing ever happened with my IMSS appointment to see the knee specialist. Like I wrote in a previous post, I think they rely on time to do their healing. If they wait long enough to give people appointments, they might get well on their own.
I think it will be a couple of more weeks before the rains come. We had a couple of brief thunder storms but then no more. In the meantime, I will spend my afternoons in my comfortable cave.
