A fond fairwell on our last night.

Leaving is always a little sad. Tuesday evening we were able to have some time to visit with Nuria, Marta and George.  A fond fair well to new friends.  We worked well as a team to capture images and meet people during a special time, Semana Santa in San Luis Potosì.
George hold Churro, their older dog.  In the mirror is Marta with Squeak, the lively puppy.

Chufa, the German Shepard, loves to play water games with Nuria

The Team, now friends, Marta, Margaret, George, Fred, and Nuria

Chufa, tired of us talking, instead of playing with her,  grabs my precious journal off the table and runs off.  A crazy game of chase follows.  George gives her a chunk of cheese in exchange for my book, only slightly worse for wear.  Thank god I didn't have to tell every one that the dog ate my homework.

A toast to one all.  Hope you enjoyed our trip as much as we did.  We will have an exhibition of photos, paintings and prose from the trip at the Frank Bette Center, Alameda, for the month of November, 2014. Best regards to everyone, Margaret

Coming Home ~wed

Wednesday, April 30, we made an early start, with USA airport requirements in mind, and arrived at the airport well ahead of our fellow travelers.  Fortunately another flight was going out early or there might not have been any agents or immigration officers.  But the girls were there selling coffee in the waiting room once we'd cleared security.

How quickly our ears readjust to the sounds of English and hectic busy airports.  Our layover and customs clearing was Houston Airport, a huge hub for United Airlines.
We have a great view of all the planes coming into the terminal.
