Life is sometimes a slap in the face. I am in the throes of thesising and applying for jobs, I have not spent much time going out with friends. Just when my friends are coming to Mexico City, and I’m making stronger friendships with the people I already know.
Today I went out with two friends to what I understood to be a sushi buffet. It turned out to be a barbecue in front of an Asian restaurant, and the sushi was inside, which I didn’t realize until I was about to pay. Still, I got to buy some Asian goods from inside the supermarket, and now I know where to buy my coconut milk. Hurray! As I was walking home with one of the friends, I said that if I were at home and this had happened, I would have been very upset. But, since it is Mexico, and approximately half of the things work in the way I expect (and the half is only because I’ve been to Mexico before. When I first came here I think it was at about 10-30%), I decided to roll with it and just enjoy the barbecue.
Now, off to buy some more groceries and make some dinner.
