Yesterday and today we went for some walks around where we live to check things out. We quickly learned that sidewalks are the same as in the Philippines, very uneven. You have to watch where your going!
And we saw another similarity, a Mexican street child. However we don't see as many of these as we did in the Philippines.
And this is definitely something we didn't see in the Philippines! Guadalajara is quite clean.
A beautiful stone building apparently used for wedding receptions, parties etc.
And I saved the best for last! A waffle house, yes they were delicious! We splurged and I enjoyed a delightful waffle with strawberries and whipped cream on top. (Yes, Lindsey I thought of you.) Steven had a regular waffle and ham and eggs. Most of the restaurants have menu's in English and this morning we spent a good bit of time studying both menus to learn some Spanish words. We met a nice man who was taking his 2 children for breakfast and he spoke English because he and his family had lived in Decatur, IL for two years. We were able to ask him some questions and he also wanted to know what we were doing here so Steven took the opportunity to tell him and to also tell him about the church that we attend. We really enjoyed talking to him but when we got ready to go (because we didn't understand Spanish) he paid for our breakfast! And then with much laughter confessed that he took advantage of our lack of Spanish!
We're excited about beginning language on Monday and some words are already sticking as in this area where we shop etc. most people do not speak English so our dictionary is well worn already!
Hope you are having a great Saturday as well.
