My Sister and MeMy Sister and MeMy Sister and Me

After more than ten month we met again.
Getting finally there where I had promised my sister to come to, just around the back side of the earth, was overwhelming me with the fact that I had nearly accomplished this journey around the world. That I had come so far savely!
It was time for a break before I started for the last part of the trip so I lived at my sister's for nearly a month. In a small language school I brushed up my spanish for some days. In between from time to time I watched the German National Soccer Team play at the world cup in Germany or pushed in a crowd of Mexican fans watching their team perform in a match. The modern university my sister had studied at was a good place for me to have access to the internet and to deal with my travelblog.
After some weeks of relaxing my sister and me also did a three day excursion to the pacific. Apart from Panama City I hadn't had time for a visit of this coast side before.

The houses in Guadalajara's better parts often have nice facades.

At times I'm really looking forward to German bread. When I then see what they call "Pan Integral" overhere that's when I can't wait anymore and bake one myself.
