Feeling a little blue


Some of it is the frustration of trying to make friends here, which is a bit slow going.  I spend too much time alone, whether it is in my room or out in the city, and it makes me feel isolated.  If I really want to improve my Spanish, I have to redouble my efforts to meet people and get invited out to places, dinners, parties, etc.  I have been trying to make friends on the internet, and I am having a little success but not as much as I would like.  I need to force myself go out to more public places (and be more public) this week.  In any event, I am leaving Friday on a big trip which will be nice.  So far I am planning to hit Oaxaca, San Cristóbal de las Casas, Palenque and Campeche before meeting up with Arnaud in Cancún.
