When Mookie was three we lived in San Miguel de Allende, in the state of Guanajuato, Mexico, for six months. Now I have another sabbatical and we are doing it again, except living in Oaxaca this time.
As we were sorting through our belongings before coming here, Mookie released the beloved blue dress that she’s wearing in the cover photo of this blog. When she first got it, on our last Mexico trip, it was very long on her.
Now it is not. So “new pretty Mexican dress for Mookie” was on our shopping list for our first weeks in Oaxaca, and here it is. She is posing in the courtyard of the beautiful short-term apartments where we stayed for the first two weeks.
I’m pleased to notice that the water bottle in the background in the 2010 picture is still in her possession; she’s got it with her again on this trip. She also still has the beautiful yellow poncho that her guidemother Darcey made for her. Some things aren’t outgrown so fast.
