: Joffre, I, too, am sorry to hear of your
: separation. I remember how much you desired
: to leave Mississippi, so I hate to think of
: your returning, and yet, I understand how
: isolating it would be to live in a foreign
: city where your language skills are limited
: and you have few friends. Maybe you'll be
: able to make more when you are single. I
: know that as half of a couple, I have a
: tendency to shut others out. On the plus
: side, if you return to Corinth, you'd be
: less than three hours away from Tuscaloosa.
: Surely we could figure something out!
: Guillermo, thank you so much for you
: generous offer to allow me to stay with you.
: If I come, though, I'd feel that I was
: imposing. I'm sure I would choose a hotel
: (or Airbnb). I would love to come. I will
: have to check a lot of things (work
: schedule, my wife, whom I doubt would wish
: to join me, finances, etc.) before I could
: make definite plans. It will probably not
: be Holy Week. As I think I have previously
: shared, I have become a practicing
: Christian, so I probably will want to
: participate in all the services at my
: church. It's my favorite time of the
: Christian calendar. Anyway, I most
: certainly wish to come. I wish Joffre could
: join us. Maybe sometime in the future. Who

: Joffre: I'm sorry that you can't make it to
: Mexico and that you are separating. I hope
: it's for the best. Good luck.
: Sterling: you would be most welcome to
: Mexico City. Semana Santa (Holy Week) in
: March or April (I'll have to look it up to
: see the exact dates for 2018) is great as
: the city is deserted, there's no rain,
: traffic is low and so it is most enjoyable.
: If you feel comfortable, you can stay at our
: apartment, very conveniently located, or we
: can look for a hotel or Airbnb close by.
: Make your plans and let me know in advance,
: so we won't make other plans. Great idea!

: Sorry, I can't make it to Mexico City. But
: you should still go, Sterling. You guys have
: B.A. is a great city to visit. There are
: some beautiful places, some interesting
: things to do. I think most foreign cities
: are more or less interesting.
: I like living here well enough. The thing I
: hate most is that nobody ever wants to go to
: bed. Parties, family birthday parties for 8
: or 80 year olds, go on til two or three in
: the morning or even later. I don't care for
: them in the afternoon; I hate them at night.
: I am not at all a social person, which is
: why my Spanish is no better than it is. I am
: glad, though, to have learned a bit of a
: second language. I can make simple
: conversation or understand simple stories.
: My work has been tolerable enough until
: recently, and I am trying to patiently let
: this moment pass. I work 20-25 hours a week
: and almost not at all in summer, but I've
: been able to save here sharing the apartment
: with Mari. I have only recently realized how
: lucky we were to find this place. We are
: separating now, and it looks like I will
: have to pay more than we pay together. I
: want to stay for a few months to see how I
: feel, but it's very likely I'll go back to
: my family soon.
