In Mexico

It was all smooth sailing yesterday, which was great. All our bags arrived, no questions about our field equipment or 6 months of medication, and Sean was waiting for us when we came out of customs. The three of us and all the luggage actually fit in the car, and it was a short drive to his apartment on University Avenue between the neighborhoods of Coyoacรกn (a nice historic district) and CU (Ciudad Universitaria). We are very conveniently located - grocery, walmart, cafes within walking distance.

Sean's apartment is very nice, on the first floor, but away from the street. There is a locked entry gate. It has two bedrooms and nice white terrazzo floors. Our room is completely empty, so in the coming days we will be buying a bed and perhaps some other furniture. Last night we slept on the futon which was very comfortable.

Today we have a busy day with  a trip to the university for TD to get his employment paper work started and for Sean to reserve a truck for a trip in August. Then its a big trip to INEGI (like USGS) to get maps for our trip and the grocery store to buy food for our trip to Rancho el Cielo.

  1. so great to get a glimpse of SR's apt and to learn details about your day yesterday. So glad that customs went well. Good luck gathering everything for your field work.
