For the first month of our trip, I have had a nagging feeling in the back of my mind: Jimmy, you should be writing about this and posting it. But more often than not, some other activity comes up, or a bus ride lulls me to sleep, and the post goes unwritten.
Before I started my proofreading course, I thought I wanted to leverage Among the Stones to generate income. Now that I’m learning new skills that I can use to work remotely, I’m free to use this space as it was intended; my own space, for me, about whatever I want, in solidarity with the open and decentralized web.
So in an effort to unburden myself from the posts I haven’t written about Mexico City, Guanajuato, San Miguel de Allende, Cuernavaca, and Oaxaca, here are some of the unwritten posts.
- Exploring Condesa: Condesa and Colonia Roma are two beautiful and vibrant neighborhoods in the middle of Mexico City.
- Art for Everyone: Museo Soumaya: Carlos Slim’s art museum named after his late wife, Museo Soumaya features beautiful sculptures of Auguste Rodin, landscapes of Venice, an unfortunate Asia in Ivory exhibit, and other contemporary works.
- An Open letter to ADO: We’ve logged a total of 63 hours in bus transport this month. ADO is a major bus company. I intended to write them an open letter about their peculiar movie choices1 and their liberal use of air conditioning in the middle of the night.
- Cafes de Olla in Oaxaca: Move over Piñon Coffee, Cafe de Olla is my new favorite drink.
- Ultimate Frisbee in Cuernavaca: My good friend Brandon lives in Cuernavaca and took me to his Ultimate Frisbee practices. It was exhausting but fun.
We are in Puerto Escondido on the Oaxacan coast staying in a surf hostel with very nice people. Today, we got a request on Work Away to stay at a different hostel a few blocks down and work for our room and board.
