So there hasn’t been much going on for us this week. I have been busy taking naps in the afternoon and then lying to Mike and telling him that of course I am not taking naps. We finally got an outside trashcan and we have lived here over a month! This wasn’t our fault, but our council. It is the standard issue model and really nothing special, but it will save us from waiting until dark and sneaking, ninja style, to dump our trash into the dumpster of the restaurant across the street.
We are going to go out for Mexican food with some folks from Mike’s work for the 4th of July at Wahaca. We aren’t sure how to celebrate this holiday seeing as it is celebrating our independence from the people all around us. There is a fine line between joyous celebrating and getting spit in your enchilada.
I am also going up to the American Women in London Club tomorrow to finish processing my application so I should be able to start doing things with them very soon. I am really hopeful that this will lead to some friends. The whole finding a job thing is still not going very well so at least this will get me out of the apartment more and actually meeting people!
We will take pictures on Friday so that I can show you what the 4th of July looks like from the motherland.
