Mexico Part 1: “Rain me a River”

 

On Monday, I spent the day travelling from Vancouver through Phoenix to Guadalajara, Mexico.
I’m doing a workshop on Two-You Work to promote my book at a regional AAGT conference here.
I took a taxi from the airport and on route it started to rain.  When I checked into my room on the 17th floor,  I could hear the rain driving against my window.  I looked out but I could hardly see a thing. The rain was coming down in sheets.  There was so much rain on the streets that cars were making waves as they pushed through the water and people were wading through water up to their knees.  There was a lot of thunder and lightening.  I was glad to be in my room and dry.  The storm gradually subsided.

The next morning I was awakened at 5:30AM by another storm, again lots of lightening, thunder and sheets of rain.  As I lie in my nice warm bed listening to the storm the TV blasts on around 6:00AM with loud Mexican music.  I was glad I was already awake.  So much for sleeping in.

I thought I would not be able to do site-seeing today because of the weather, but by about 10:00AM it was clearing off so I headed out.  I had left my umbrella in Vancouver thinking I wouldn’t need it.

I walked about a dozen blocks to the Cathedral  in the town square.  From there I went on a bus tour of the city.  The weather became sunny and hot. I was glad I wore my wide-brimmed hat.

This wasn’t the weather I’d expected in Guadalajara.

With care and concern,

Dr. Bea
