This could puth Johnson and Johnson out of business for their “No more tears” baby shampoo! Look at that little cutie…now he can just relax and enjoy the head massage without fear soap in his eyes!

I saw this online the other day. Amusing and kind of gross to think about, but also very telling of the true distance and things that parents do/don’t think about when it comes to their children. I can’t say that I would love to be in this situation, but anytime bodily functions are involved, it takes true love/caring/understanding to get past the “icky” part of it.
Even though there are no pictures that I can recall, I know there were probably some bathroom incidents and a few vomit ones in my past; thank you Mom and Dad for powering through it and making me feel better!
I wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I have the fortunate pleasure to be flying back home to California for Christmas (doing double duty to also take the opportunity to renew my visa!) and will leave on Saturday. Looks like I might bump into Santa (or Papá Noel) along the way. Although I won’t be arriving through the chimney, I will be arriving to what will probably be insane traffic and little walking space at LAX airport. I think I would prefer the chimney.
One splendid week with my family, friends and will finally get my haircut from my “place”…I have been waiting 3 months for it because every place I go to here just doesn’t get it the way I want it. And I will be honest, I have been missing some good Mexican food. The only thing is that I am kind of sick, which I have been working on overcoming since Sunday. I have been drinking liters of water everyday with the hope of flushing this bad boy out before I get on the plane – there is nothing worse than flying while you are sick.
Anyway, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone who follows this (be you silent readers, or those moved enough to comment/like) blog. While I have only just started this maybe 2 months ago, and don’t always get a chance to update it as often as I would like, it still has been great knowing that some of the things I write about are interesting to more than just myself! Thank you all so much and I hope none of you get a lump of coal this year; although depending on where some of you live and how cold it gets, you might actually be able to use that this year. Maybe that lump isn’t looking so bad…. Here is to a fresh start and a renewed sense of motivation for the New Year!
Found this on Facebook a few weeks back. I think it is just a rendering, which is too bad; this would be a cool, modern interpretation on the famous clocks by Salvador Dalí. What do you think? Like the post to tell me how many of you would enjoy checking the time on on this every day!
Also, if you are interested in more things Dalí, check out this post from Victor Tribunsky!
Just found this photo on Facebook today and felt I needed to share it! This is a mining city located in the Andes in central Peru. The mine produces lead, zinc and sliver; copper used to be mined as well, but it has been depleted. This is not a post about the reasons why or why we shouldn’t mine, or an opinion about the environment, etc. I merely posted this because it shows the crazy things that go on in Peru sometimes. How many countries would let its cities build that close to a mine? This is horrible, I just hope the sides of the excavation are stable!
Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. Unfortunately I will be missing out on the feast this year, but has not stopped me from eyeballing all the photos on Facebook from friends back home who are preparing for the army of family about to converge on a cornucopia of food. I found this image and thought it was fitting to give a big salutation from Peru. It is a guinea pig in a pilgrim hat, and it is significant from Peru because guinea pigs are a delicacy here…so I like to think of it as s/he is thankful for having today off while every gobbles down the turkey. It is kind of like those Chic-fil-A ads where the cow is walking around saying “eat more chikn”!
Thanksgiving is one thing I always miss when I am abroad. I have tried to recreate it many times, but it just isn’t the same. And it doesn’t help when I am the only one really excited about it. People just don’t seem to get it…which I don’t understand. It is a a FEAST of delicious food. This year in Peru, unfortunately, I don’t think I am going to put the effort into making a mini Thanksgiving. I just don’t have the time.
But while I was looking around online for work, I came across this! How funny/creative/delicous! I wouldn’t mind trying that green chili dough, either! This is just another reason why I love New Mexico!
Happy early Thanksgiving to all! I think i will be going to the store tonight to stock up on bread and turkey slices. That is pretty similar to this, right? 🙂
Apparently the Asian theme continues, as I just found these photos my friend took while she was visiting Peru. Obviously the proprietors have no idea how this sounds/looks in English…and they shouldn’t worry about it, they are in Peru, not an English speaking country. Nevertheless, it makes you chuckle a bit!
This first one my friend says: “I like to think of this as Chinese Food: Dang!”
This second one, well, all I have to say is that chickens can be a nuisance sometimes!
