Continuing my recession strategy of dramatically reducing my expenses in lieu of submitting to gainful employment, I find myself again in Mexico. San Miguel de Allende to be exact. See map above if you want to know EXACTLY where I’m sitting at this moment.
And even though I am spending a lot of time in the familiar environs of Google, Facebook and the NYT online, it’s now accompanied by the delighted screams of children playing in the park across the street and, as of 5 minutes ago, the blaring trumpets and drums of a Mexican marching band practicing for some nationalist event no doubt (it’s a parade a month in San Miguel).
Nope, I’m not in California anymore!
