Washington, or in other words “Washaton”, is one of the rainiest places to live on the United States.
Home of Seattle’s Best Coffee, but also the highest suicide rate in the country, Washington is a mixed influence. Living here is both good and bad. The sun rarely shines, but is you like to live like a duck in a pond than this is the place for you. Home of the Evergreen trees, and boy are they ever-green! Western Washington is a beautiful place, and I honestly think that the reason why everything has its lush, green beauty, is because of all of the rain. It is just depressing if you do not like nature. The rain is intense, but the green beauty if even more intense.
San Felipe is located on the Baja of California in Mexico. People that know of San Felipe know it as a retirement community for elders over 50 years of age. Others know it as the spot to go for the Baja 250 racing event. Some may even know it as the place to go for sun, fun, and great tacos. Either way you put it, people all over the world know of San Felipe. The town harbors about 20,000 people, mostly Mexican, some American, others from other places in the world.
Living here for almost a year, I have experiences so may things here in San Felipe. Meeting people and seeing things that you wouldn’t see anywhere else are just perks to living in a foreign country. I have met many great people that I wouldn’t have met if I hadn’t moved here. I am grateful that I had this opportunity. I now plan on traveling within life. If anyone has the chance of ever going to a Baja race, traveling to Mexico, or even traveling in general, I say go for it! It is a great life experience! Live life for yourself. Make a trip somewhere once a year. Do it for you.
Little kids are so adorable. They are bashful, spirited, sweet, and full of giggles and laughs. When I hear the laughter echoing through the streets and playgrounds here in Mexico, it reminds me of my childhood years. I miss running around on a playground, feeling as if I were on top of the world. Those years were easy. Waking up, going to preschool or kindergarten, playing on the play grounds, nap-time, snack-time, and then going home. Going home only to repeat the process, but instead of with classmates, with the neighborhood children. It is amazing how much you can forget in the process of growing up. You forget to have fun, and how to be a kid. I think everyone should take time to be a kid once in a while. Life is short after all.
The cut throat game of Mexican train is played by six people. Friends and enemies alike. Dominoes set together in a line-like pattern. Friends in the beginning of the game, enemies by the end. A game of strategy and fate. With a little bit of deceit. Working to finish first, and making other increase thief point values, this is a great way to have fun and also keep your mind young.
Is it just me or is everyone pregnant? Almost all of my friends, that are female, are all pregnant! I’m not saying that its bad, it is their lives and all… but I mean if you are 14, 15, 16 years of age, you shouldn’t get pregnant!! That is just my opinion!! Stop being irresponsible and keep a dime between your legs!
Sitting at the border for HOURS. Every vender in Mexico is awaiting you to show up just say they can bombard you. Yes, I understand it’s a way to make a living. Yes, I understand the border lines are the best place to catch people. What I’m getting at is that if everyone is selling the same thing, do you think they will buy yours?? I don’t know if it’s just me thinking this, but come in people!! And then what really attacks my heart is when the people asking for money are missing limbs. A foot here, a leg there, and some times a hand or an arm… It really gets to me. No matter how much I wish, I can help every person in the world. I would die trying. At least it would be a good cause… I hope.
There are more Chinese food places in Mexico than I think anywhere in the united states! It is insane! Just in the mall in Mexicali there are 9chinese food places!! Holy guacamole!!! Do they like their Chinese food or what?! (:
Well, I’ve done it. My first taxi ride ever. Mexicali has the craziest taxi drivers I’ve ever seen! Yet I decided, I’m going to ride in one today. Haha, wow. Riding through the streets and back roads of Mexicali was amazing. I saw an old cathedral and many material stores. The taxi driver then proceeded to tell me about the cathedral. It was interesting. They used it for weddings and such. He said “they get married for love, but divorced because of partying and drinking.” that is for Mexico and I think it applies in the united states as well. My first taxi ride wasn’t just a taxi ride, it ended up being a history class as well.
