My first week in Mexico is almost over! I love the weather, still can't get over it being sunny all day. And warm. I forgot what it was like to leave the house without a sweater. Five years in London wiped sunshine from my memory. It's also nice to see family, I haven't caught up with friends yet.
Today I went for a walk and found an outdoorsy coffee shop. It's walking distance from my mom's place and has a patio with trees and swings. This will be where I go to write, at least until I am done with the hand written first draft of my 2nd book. There's a little lake nearby too. I love nature and even though it doesn't look like the Serpentine or Hyde Park, I'm sure I'll love it.
What else? My back is much better now. I am going to start swimming next week. The osteopaths I saw in London suggested swimming plus strengthening exercises (or pilates). That was what I neglected to do when I pulled a muscle in my back last September. I am taking it easy this time.
My books also arrived in the post this week! Thirty kilos of books on astrology, healing, Kabbalah, Reiki, Tarot, Buddhism, anatomy and physiology, Ayurveda and other fun things. Like French. I haven't read them all so I can get started now while I am still getting settled in. Mexico is treating me well :-)
