Just a few blocks away, we found this other bark—this one less welcoming to intruders.

I believe Diego was ready for either breakfast or dinner.  He had tried his hardest to be polite, but his mom was intent on her blog, so finally he let his wishes be known vocally. Things always get intense at my house around meal time!

DSC00004I think my friends Lach and Becky look very intense as they entertain a crowd at La Rueda.  Alas, they are back in the states and La Rueda is no more, but the good news is that although they came to visit, they ended up buying a house and will be back down soon!  We did the same thing.  Came for one day, stayed ten and by the end of it had purchased a house.  Mexico stirs up intense loyalties in those who get bitten by the bug!
