FOLLOW YOUR HEART

Leaving for a road trip today…
Through the heart of Mexico.
First flying to Guadalajara…
Then renting a car...
And driving to a small town two hours away…
Where I’ll join friends at 11pm…
To celebrate El Grito—the cry for independence.
It's Mexico's holiday for when they conquered the Spanish.
A few days later.
I’ll attend a quinceanera...
A celebration for girls when they turn 15.
Next, to the town of San Miguel de Allende…
Which some of you may know…
Is the site of one the most famous…
Writer Retreats.
Check it out for next February…
Some amazing speakers will be there.
Like Elizabeth Hay, Joyce Carol Oats, and others.
Next, on to Guanajuato…
To see the famous mummies…
From there, Puebla…
Know as the gastronomical city of Mexico.
Then up into the Sierra Madre Oriental...
A mountain range running parallel…
With the Gulf of Mexico.
I plan to see several ruins along the way…
Including the famous Olmec megalith heads…
Plus explore shops wherever they turn up…
Letting serendipity guide me to find treasures.
Then on home.
Feels weird that I just started my blog again…
Then I’m off on a 15 day road trip…
But I believe…
We are all on a spiritual journey…
And I’ve learned to follow my heart
Wherever that takes me.
Hasta luego amigos.
Catch up with you…
On the flip side of the tortilla.

Always,
Em-Musing

P.S. I will post when I get back and hopefully
I'll have taken some great photos that I'll share

Celebrations and ruins - that sounds like a fun two weeks. I'd probably take a thousand photos.

I find it interesting that Mexico's history is very similar to America's when it comes to how it became a real country. They even borrowed the United States name though in Spanish of course.
