hola hola hola!
How are we all??? Good? Great?! I must say, better than having no gas to cook OR have a warm shower with ☺ hehe, bill was 'lost', so I guess we’ll sort it out this week… sometime 😉

Went to Texas earlier in the week, to buy some stuff… backpack…. For well backpacking (I’m wondering exactly how I’m fit 3 months worth of stuff in there.
Ipod… nano was the same price as the 20GB photo colour… so, I’m always up for a good bargain and got it for US$250. Hmmm and kickboxing gloves, for my classes, which I found out, are ending soon ☹

On Friday DJ tiesto ‘search for sunrise’ played, supposedly one of the best in the world, but very misleading…the sun doesn’t rise at 4:30 am, and that’s when it ended are people complaining it ending at 3:30…raves? come on Mexico…. You can do better than that!

Cuatro Cienegas (four pools)… thermal pools in the middle of the dessert… ooh with ‘big’ sand dunes, in comparison to Bethels Beach, NZ, they’re like sand bumps, though being in the middle of nowhere, I guess that’s relatively impressive ☺ After a couple hours

orelio, with a volvo, don't worry junior knows him :) except he wasn't coming with me and sarah...
sleep, and a bus with excellent suspension (sarcasm), feeling sick and changed seats about 7 times, motion sickness as a kid has come back to haunt me :S anyways it was well worth the pain because cuatro cienegas was pristine. Although we got there relatively late the first night, we did get to see a conservation pool with turtle and whatnot ☺ so pretty, I forgot my camera, sorry guys. But I make up for it, I do, I do. Eventually got to the camping site at dark, pitched a tent, for those that had one, the rest slept under the stars (me), and other ‘scardy cats’ in the bus.
After taking a decent hour or so to light the fire (thanks a lot to Emily and I, ooh and the collecting team/ you taught me well father) we had two fires going, one that was pretty to look at, one that you could actually use for cooking (ex-boy scouts made that one). That night we went for a midnight dip followed by a midnight snack, me favourita. Eventually went to bed, I think I just had extra long blinks throughout the night, and… woke up and took a morning

swim…. By myself… like a morning meditative period. Tranquil and refreshing to the mind, as well as thawing off after realising we slept in the dessert. lol. Oh I love life, I truly think that’s the one thing you can love then, it’s all above the people, or if you’re lucky enough, one in particular. So hitchhiked to the halfway to sand dunes, played around and appreciated the sand with a decent amount of time, then wandered on back to the camp site (4km away) playing singing games, and ‘a ship full of…’. The weekend was pretty much full of, swimming, dancing, dipping, eating, floating, drinking, frolicking the water and sun and insightful conversations, (thanks to my bus buddy boys (who would’ve thought…???)) anyways … yes, that’s all folks, sorry for the report back like style, but jadey’s tired

Sleep time
