Special thanks to my home, I love you guys, for the few days off for my birthday so I could travel to DF and Cuernavaca. It was an awesome birthday gift.
Now I can tell you about the trip.
On the night of the 10th (my birthday) I set out with others from Veracruz to drive to Mexico City (DF) about half way there the transmission went out! TTL we found a safe place to leave the van and caught a ride to the next biggest city with a family home in it which was an hour away.
Thanks to the Puebla home for putting us up so graciously and hospitably with no notice. It was great to have that home unexpectedly added to the list of homes I was going to visit.
I spent the morning there fellowshipping with the home then headed to DF to the ND home where they put me up for two nights and hosted my birthday party. The party turned out better then I could have hoped for with close friends and very informal, just a few games, snacks and drinks, with everyone fellowshipping and telling stories.
Then it’s off to Cuernavaca for a day to visit with all my friends in the home there. Recently some folks I lived with 5 years ago in Europe moved here so it was a lot of fun to see them all again.
