Eco Fair Escapees

We went to an eco-fair at a farm near Huayapan. It was fantastic. Max rode a bike that powered a blender, and another one that powered a corn-grinder. We drank Tejate and talked to a company that told us they could install a solar water heater and tank on our roof for $700. We saw a beautiful house made of compressed dirt. Genevieve ran through greenhouses with tomatoes creeping up vines and Max made a tiny box for compost. Then, the little goats saw their chance and broke free of their pens, munching on everything in sight. Go goats!

La Raza

We bought this painting from our friend Humberto Batista. It's called "La Raza".

The Little Car that Could?

Yes, there it is in the corner, our little VW Bug, or "El Vocho", the character Steve immortalized in his El Vocho blog.

Our vochito broke yesterday and is now down the block in the mechanic's shop. We are wishing it well (until we can sell it).
