All in all. Fantastic. Moving around like that I had the pleasure and opportunity to have MANY roomates at any given time. Some were great, some were not.... LOL. I was always the only Canadian, and used to laugh when I'd hear " You dont' look Canadian, You don't dress Canadian" - How do we look and dress?? That I'll never seem to get... LOL. In all fairness, most of my roomates were from NYC - they lived and breathed NY. They admitted they just didn't think outside of NYC. I now get it. I was there visiting them in March and it is unbelievable!!!
Okay, so I'm getting off track..... Back to business. I received an email from one of my old roomies who was letting me know that she just got a job at the US Consulate in Merida, and will be moving down in May for 2 years!!!!!!!!! I am sooooo excited. I havent' seen her in ages!! The job sounds pretty decent to boot! They are supplying her with a home to live in, a decent salary, and a 2 year contract. Wow.
Old roomie is a very smart woman. She is a born and raised Texan - blonde and beautiful. She moved down to Cancun YEARS ago - worked at a few resorts in sales, and then back to Texas to complete law school. She studied spanish in Costa Rica for 3 months, and then moved back to Cancun. Where we met. I ended up leaving before she, but she did get transferred to Turks and Caicos for a year or two.... Now she's headed back to a place she LOVES to call home. Mexico!!!
I am so happy to have a friend who will be close by, and happy that she is just SO happy!!! (cliche???!!!)
Oh and foor good old times - how about a picture blast from the past!!!
