I'm still alive yo. Fighting extreme jet lag and missing my family. Pictures later. Details to come. I'm glad I'm not on island to witness the election madness. The ride up to San Vicente on my way home last Friday was unnerving enough. Did anyone else get stuck in the traffic?
The natives here are mostly friendly, but in a hurry to get to wherever it is they are going. They are celebrating Halloween with enthusiasm. On the metro last night the college crowd were in full gear, full volume, fully inebriated and exacerbated my claustrophobia greatly (you thought I was gonna say fully?).
Today I sat with the "suits". They are a curious demographic, constantly pacing and on their cell phones. They live mainly on Starbucks. I still cannot tell the democrats from the republicans off the bat, but I am observing them carefully. If anyone knows a quick litmus test for this, please let me know. I may take a few photo samples for research. Also, if anyone would like a postcard, please send me an email. If I find an elderly woman chewing betelnut on the sidewalk next to the United Colors of Benetton, you can be sure I will post it!
