I can't really say that I am surprised by the fact that the 3 months, I initially thought I would stay here as a stopover on the way to Patagonia, turned into a year. But just over the last month bits and pieces started coming together that I felt if I ever want to travel the Panamericana to Patagonia - the time is NOW. I could philosophy about this - but fact is, things are coming to a nice close here and places to be discovered are calling and I feel this opportunity to just go out and wander may pass one day. I guess this has been a constant somewhat, this anxiety that opportunities are going to vanish. This feeling of missing a moment or missing out on an adventure, that an opportunity won't present itself again. I cannot deny the comfort of just staying put of not disrupting the day-to-day order, yet, few things truly get to me as much as over-predictability. Yes, security, a place to belong to are fundamental, but too much of it and too little sparks - no way, güey. I will miss quite a few people from here dearly and am sad to leave this grand city and my friends, with who I shared so many unforgettable moments, which make me burst out laughing just thinking about them - but paths always cross again if one makes an effort.
Not to continue to ramble; since this blog was supposed to be about posting what I am seeing, here are some pictures from this past year from el pinche Malinche, Playa Bonfil at Acapulco, Oaxaca, Yucatan mit Mami und Papi!, Baja California with the gang, el Chepe y las Rarámuris en las Barrancas del Cobre and of course pictures of some moments, in which I remembered to take my camera in and around el DF.
