It is freezing – really. It is freezing and it has been for days. It seldom freezes on the San Francisco peninsula, let alone for days.

New Years Resolutions

  1. Show Gabrielle that you love her every day.
  2. Practice the guitar more frequently and regularly.
  3. Blog more frequently – with photos

This January, to celebrate my birthday, Gabi and I spent two weeks in Mexico. We visited four colonial cities around the central highlands: Puebla, Cuernavaca, Morelia and San Miguel de Allende.

Unfortunately, the day before we left, our Olympus digital camera died! To make things worse, half way into our trip, our Canon 35 MM camera died too! Most of shots ended up being taken on disposable cameras. All of the photos were digitized from film at very low resolution, so forgive the photo quality.
