Hey my loves,
Sorry I didn't post this yesterday, I had a hectic day. It was my nephew's 6th Birthday and I had to do a lot of things like bake his cupcakes and wrap his gifts last minute. In the afternoon my brother brought him over so we could sing Happy Birthday to him and so he could open some of his presents. Saturday he's gonna have his real birthday party, but what fun is a birthday if you can't open presents.
Anyways, this post is day 26 and it asks for a photo of somewhere I've been, well to be honest, I haven't been many places...I know, I know how lame. I went to Louisiana once when I was little and I've visited Mexico often, since my parents were born there. Unfortunately, with all the stuff going on with the drug cartels and stuff, it's pretty tough to travel to Mexico these days, so we haven't gone in a few years.
One of the last times I went was I believe back around Thanksgiving of '07, before things got really bad over there. On our way back, I snapped this picture of the Rio Grande River...
This is the river that seperates The U.S. (Texas) from Mexico.
I took this picture from the car, while waiting to crossover, we were there for like 3 hours waiting. The line was super long. That was back then and when, tons of people used to go to Mexico for the holidays. Ah the good old days. To be honest, I can't wait to go back, I miss my family, seeing where my parents grew up and hanging out over there on vacations. I remember going over there all the time when I was younger. I can't wait for this whole ordeal with the drug cartels to be over, if it ever is. Mexico, atleast the part where I'm from, is not the same today as it was back 4 yrs. ago when I took this picture. It truly makes me sad. :(
So yeah, I hope you enjoyed this quick post.
Where have you traveled?
