Today someone fixed some of the problems we have with our little castle. Soon after he arrived he turned off the electricity, so I couldn't work on my MexIT (this blog) generating Perl program.
Esme and I decided to go out and bought a bigger "house" for Tina the scorpion. It has been living in a small plastic cake box since Monday.
In the evening we had several tacos at a food stand down the street. In general it is not recommended to eat from stands on the street in Mexico, but this one is very good, and we have eaten there before.
Esme showed me the website of the university she is going to. The site has a link that leads to a weather forecast for Xalapa, Veracruz.
