Here are photos that tell the story of some of my activities and friends over the last 8 months. As I prepare to move to California for the winter, I have put together these photos as a tribute and thank you to the many that have loved and sustained me in Melaque this year.
My first “thank you’s” are to Gail and Yoda for providing me with a lovely home which fortunately withstood the wrath of Hurricane Patricia remarkably well.
I enjoyed many, many hours at home alone, and the occasional company of friends.
Thanks to the tireless efforts of Pro-Animal, in addition to the puppies I wrote about in an earlier blog, it was an honour to love and fatten up rescue puppy, Lenteja, and find her a good home.
Yoda checks out the skinny pup the day she arrives. A month later she is looking much better and is ready to move on.
I enjoyed teaching English and Tai Chi classes throughout the summer and fall.
It was a treat to watch “my kids” from the daycare perform the other night, including a Christmas song in English.
An important part of my time here was studying yoga with fabulous Blanca at Bios Yoga.
In September, I surprised my mom for her birthday as part of a wonderful visit to Toronto for the High Holy Days.
To my great fortune, Neah visited me twice this year, and Joy joined her in a fabulous visit in early December.
Thanks for making it through all these photos!
I wish you all a Happy and Healthy 2016!
The journey continues… xoxo Didi/Dawn
