Well we are happy to say that we have found a home for ourselves in San Cristobal de las Casas. We will be about a 15 – 20 min. walk to Rick´s work and 10 ish to downtown. Thanks to the help of MCCers here in Mexico and your prayers we will be settling into our place sometime next week. It has been a good journey these past 2 + months living in various places (10 different beds I count) and we have been blessed by the hospitablity of many. But we are also joyfully looking forward to calling a place our home. Interesetingly at various times one of our kids has asked if we can go home and Rick and I look at each other wondering exactly what they mean, thankfully for the most part they seem content to return to the place whatever their home base is for that moment. Rick was able to travel to San Cristobal de las Casas last week and walk the streets of our new hometown … and apparently we all have much to look forward to in the coming months! Since it is now the beginning of December we will have to quickly unpack a few Christmas items we brought along and catch up on our advent calendars, apparently there even is a place quite close by that sells Christmas trees! Que Suerte!
We will try to post more pictures soon in our photo gallery of the past days … for now if you are at all Google Earth or Map sauvey and/or interested look for – #16 Magistero, 14 de Septiembre, San Cristobal de las Casas, Mexico and you will find a front picture of our house. In this picture it is a kind of blueish color with a few brown doors and both a yellow and red car parked in front. Google earth has great panoramics of this town is you want to journey around a bit too! Perhaps when we know the town better we can direct you to some of our common stomping grounds.
