Catch-up

The past two weeks have been a lot of fun here in Cuernavaca. I flew into Mexico City after a 2-hour delay and then was driven to Cuernavaca where I am staying for the 12 weeks i am here.

For the first week I had three other senoritas staying in the house in some of the other rooms, along with my Mexican parents. With the senoritas I spent a lot of time out doing random activities. We went to the zocalo, where there is an artisans market, along with a museum.

The first Sunday that I was here we went to Taxco where there are a lot of stores all dedicated to Silver or Platno. Every day for the past two weeks, and now this third week, I attend classes to improve my Spanish. Already since i got here i already notice a much higher increase of known words. At the school there are a lot of other students from the states that are also learning Spanish. Those other students are the only English influence down here the rest of the time, I speak Spanish.

My second weekend here I spent my time at a Museum in Mexico [City]. We first went to the National Cathedral, Templo Mayor, and then Finally the Museo de Antropol√≥gico. This was a very cool museum. With it we did a lot of walking around to look at the rare artifacts. On Sunday we went to Teotihuacan which are two Aztec pyramids. They are to worship the Sun and the Moon. I was able to walk to the very top of one, but not the other one. 

Yesterday I went to the Mercado. This is a place similar to a farmer's market in the States, but about ten times as large. It was very cool to see all the different prices of fruits and vegetables. I helped my M.mama carry the food to the car. I also bought two shirts for myself and another one for my fianc√©, Jessica. 

I am really enjoying the food here. Everything is a little bit hoter than what in the states is considered hot. Also Chipoltle in the States is no where near what Mexican food is. I usually eat about 7, 2:30 and 9. As in Mexico everyone returns home for lunch from work, takes a siesta, and the goes back to work. I am really liking the schedule. I usually get a variety of Mexican food, from eggs, to seafood, and quesadillas. 

My question I leave with you is what defines an American? Please leave me a comment. Thanks
