I am starting to like Melaque so much that I may decide to return here year after year.  The Mexicans are very friendly and agreeable, even though they are shameless thieves who will charge as much as 100 pesos for a grilled chicken.

It is the Canadians, however, with their strange beliefs and odd customs, who provide an endless source of amusement.

I previously posted a copy of my little "tarjeta de presentacion," the means by which I introduce myself to people in hopes of enticing them to read my scribblings and perhaps even leave a comment from time to time.  Included on the card is all the information one could ever need to follow along with my travels and adventures, including my e-mail address, or "correo electronico."

The mistake that I made was that I misunderestimated the slow-mindedness of the Canadians, because now when they see where it says "correo electronico," they all think that I am an electrician and will probably be wanting to call me when they have wiring problems or whatever.   Thank God I do not have a telephone!

Estoy empezando a gustar Melaque tanto que me decida a volver aquí año tras año. Los mexicanos son muy amables y agradables, a pesar de que son ladrones sinvergüenzas que cobran hasta 100 pesos por un pollo a la parrilla.

Se trata de los canadienses, sin embargo, con sus extrañas creencias y costumbres, que proporcionan una fuente inagotable de diversión.

Yo previamente publicado una copia de mi pequeña "tarjeta de presentacion," el medio por el cual me presento a la gente con la esperanza de atraer a leer mis garabatos y tal vez incluso dejar un comentario de vez en cuando. Incluido en la tarjeta es toda la información que pueda necesitar un seguimiento a lo largo de mis viajes y aventuras, incluyendo a mi e-mail, o "Correo electronico".

El error que cometí fue que malestimado la mente lento de los canadienses, porque ahora cuando ven donde dice "Correo electronico", todos piensan que soy electricista y es probable que se quiera que me llame cuando tienen cableado problemas o lo que sea. Gracias a Dios no tengo un teléfono!


  1. Slow minded Canadians eh?? Some Canadians could take exception.
    I however believe that we should all be able to laugh at our 90+% of us who travel to Mexico, that don't take the time to learn the language.

  2. Your plan of action are pretty straight forward. The large majority of
    sports stoves in county leading retailers correct now remains to
    be show up conservative in addition to the drop, that's what makes it considerably more pleasant. Clean out against the mug along with a placed table spoon.
