We have been in Zipolite, Oaxaca now for a couple of weeks and have really settled into our little place, Tres Cabanas, quite well. Aside from our weekend trips and gatherings with Lindsey and Edgar (and our new friend Annie!), weekday life is pretty slow and similar actually to life back home in San Diego (without a job of course), except you wake up to roosters, everyone speaks Spanish, and the ocean is so warm you can stay in it for hours without a wetsuit! 929 more words
