Travel Tips for Cuernavaca
Bring comfortable shoes, and don't bulk the purses
IF you are a woman travelling, do not bring a huge purse. Especially if you are not skiddish and plan to ride the local bus or plan to do much walking. I had a medium size purse (enough for say 3 pocket phrase books, my wallet, digital camera, cell phone, and a small make-up bag) and it was totally in the way. Bring something small that you can keep close to your body for convenience. I didn't need more than my money, ID, a phrase book and my camera. Bring comfortable shoes! Walking is a must, and I thought my mules I wear to run around in back home would be comfortable. The were convenient at the airport, but the insoles slid in on me. You can buy almost anything at the huge market downtown, but I recommend chapstick and sunscreen the most. Oh yeah - bring a plastic shopping bag or a small office trash bag or two, if you are staying in a youth hostel or other place with a private bathroom that may not involve room service. You cannot flush items like toilet paper, tampons, tampon tubes, etc.; those items are discarded in a garbage can next to the toilet for later disposal. If you're out and about town, a small digital camera with a wrist strap will do well. DO NOT DRINK THE WATER FROM THE TAP. I came home with a raging infection of Giardia. It won't hit you until about a week and a half to two weeks after you come home. BUY BOTTLED WATER.
Patas de Perro - Volunteer work in Cuernavaca, MEX
"Where to go and what to do?"
So the wife and I have been wanting to take a trip for some time. We looked at a lot of the usual options, Italy, France, etc. All too expensive. So we looked into a volunteer trip. Still expensive. Finally we found something called Por Un Mejor HOY http://www.hoycommunity.org/html/trips.html
For $300 the two of us could stay at this family's home in Cuernavaca, Mexico and get free breakfast. All we had to do was some volunteer work while we were there. Super-psyched we sent our money in and bought our plane tickets. Just a note in case anyone else reads this and decides to do it. Speaking spanish is a huge plus, as in the interior of Mexico you'll be hard pressed to find anyone who speaks english.
"The Sacrament of Marriage"
Having been raised in a Protestant household many of the rituals performed at catholic weddings were new to me. Though the ceremony was in Spanish, I completely felt and understood that my friends had entered into a covenant with God.
Becca embodies all of the sunshine and warmth that Fernando will ever need.
"Traveling in Style"
A new journey begins
My job that day was to show up, smile and do whatever I could to assist the bride...ahhhhhh, but she had everything under control which meant I was free to party.
I met Bec's husband the day before the wedding. He and I drove to Cuernavaca together and I feel fortunate to have had some one on one time with Fernando. He is the kindest of men and completely optimistic.
