Last night in Mexico....

For the past month, I have been exploring the large city of Guadalajara.  It has been one of the craziest experiences of my life.  I have submerged myself into the Mexican culture, which was much harder than I thought it would be.  I learned a lot of new things.  I experienced new traditions, new places, new food, new everything.... It really puts a whole new perspective into how I view my life.  Before I came here, I thought it would be easy adapt to this culture, but I was completely wrong.  Living here for the past month has been like living in a daze, it has been a whole new world.  A world that I don't understand or relate to.  It has opened my eyes, making me appreciate so much more and feel fortunate for what I have.  I can't even explain how hard it has been for me these past few weeks.  Especially considering I don't have and Mexican background and don't speak spanish.  All I can say is that

A night at the Ballet...

Last weekend, Angelic and I went to the ballet at the Degollado theatre in downtown Guadalajara.  Which is one of the oldest aristocratic theatres in town and it was absolutely GORGEOUS!  Especially at night because it was illuminated it colorful lights.  We went to see an international ballet, so there were ballet dancers from around the world.  It was a great show!  

Isn't it beautiful??
