I know, I know, I know

I have been a really bad blogger this week but honestly I think I have an excuse. I have been getting up at 6:30 and meeting Sam and Michael for a quick breakfast before heading out to the office where we have been staying until 7:30 or 8 pm. Then if we aren't taken out to dinner we go back to the hotel and have dinner and I've not been getting back to my room until 10 or 11 pm at which time this wussy has to get in bed. Also internet access at the hotel isn't exactly convenient. It's $5.00 for 1 hour or $22 for 24 hours but you have to call from your room down to the front desk and request service then wait for a bellman to come to your room (up to 1 hour wait) at which time you have to sign a chit and tip him before the user ID and password is handed over. It isn't the cost that concerns me since I will expense it and be reimbursed but considering the hours and the fact that I have spent a total of about 5 hours awake in my room this week I didn't feel like going through the hassle.

But rest assured, I have a lot to tell you - weird things I have eaten, sights I have seen . . . I have photos and even some video to post. It has been a long hard week but very exciting to be in a new country.

It's about 5:45 Friday evening. In maybe another hour Jorge, the General Manager here, is taking me on a 2 hour tour of a few sights in the city since I haven't really been able to do it this week. He's really a nice thoughtful person and as tired as I am, and as much as I would love to go back to the hotel and get in bed I am grateful for his time and looking forward to it.

I fly home tomorrow, landing in Atlanta about 6 pm so by 8 I will be happily covered with neglected cats!! I promise to spend time this weekend creating posts to catch you up on my adventures.

You'll have to update us with more Mexico pictures once you get back! I've been around, but I've never been to Mexico! Looking forward to it!
